Prague-based architectural firm Atelier 8000 proposed the Kežmarské Hut, a futuristic cube-shaped made of aluminum, glass and solar panels, designed to function completely off the grid. The Kežmarské Hut was proposed as part of an international competition for a building intended for High Tatra Mountains in Slovakia.

Almost as if part of a retreating glacier, the lodge was designed to merge into the mountainous background – like as if another rock on the horizont. Also, its shape not only allows the building to utilise solar energy to the maximum possible extent but from any given point around its perimeter three sides of the cube are visible. “The glass surfaces of windows and photovoltaic panels along with the light transparency of the metal plating complete the whole picture of the site with a touch of glimmer – just like the glints and reflections which can be observed on the surface of a mountain lake or on thawing ice,” – the designers told Dezeen.

Hikers and adventures venturing throught here will enjoy extensive ski storage space, two floors of guest rooms, an attic meditation room, a restaurant and a deck. However and according to Dezeen, the project is unlikely to make it off the drawing board, as the competition was won by architects Karel Havliš, Filip Havliš, David Zámečník and Ondřej Novosad. Eitherway, check out the photos of the project, courtesy of Atelier 8000.
