With their debut project “refugi Lieptgas” the Flims architects Selina Walder and George Nickisch has caused uproar in the press.


The cabin was intended to be from the beginning a holiday home, a maximum of two people. The inside is separated into two main areas, one for room, cook, eat and sit with a fireplace, and the other to retire ye have privacy for sleeping and bathing.


“The idea evolved petrification. The windows should not seem too traditional to maintain the presence of the abstract image from the outside of the cabin in the woods.”, says architects.


“Large rocks are left views. Is available everywhere, allowing them to grow molds and lichens, trees grow strong on them, forming caves for animals and witches … These rocks give the forest its peculiar character.”
