You Can Camp For Free In These Playful Owl Cabins in Bordeaux, France
These adorable owl-shaped cabins are the perfect hideaway for all your off-the-grid holiday needs. And they’re completely free to stay in, only be warned: these are bare-basic digs. You won’t find running water, electricity, or heating inside.
But who cares? These owls are only meant to function as camping shelters. And they provide a whole lot more comfort than a simple tent.
Going by the title The Watchers, these two story cabins were built by Zebra3 to perch on a dock in Bordeaux, France. The design pays tribute to the owls that nest in the marshes surrounding the dock.
“The idea of birds came to me very quickly,” says Zebra3’s key designer Candice Petrillo “After the last extension of the commercial zone, I saw migrants swirling around in the sky, looking for the old dried wetland. The nod of animal eye and the curve of the object are a tribute to the sculptors François Pompon and François-Xavier Lalanne.”
