In spite of being a confirmed city dweller, I am quite taken by this small weekend structure, built by Broadhurst Architects on the southern slope of South Fork Mountain, near Upper Tract, West Virginia. “The shack was created as a logical step between tent camping and the yet unrealized weekend cottage, – architects say. – This fundamental shelter has no electricity. Oil lamps provide light. Heat is provided by a small wood stove.” The place is as close to nature as one can get. The front facing façade of the building features a glass garage door that opens to a magnificent view of the valley. Side windows provide ventilation, by letting mountain air inside the building. A simple and beautiful structure for the peaceful living.
