The Mountain Lighthouse
PROJECT: An retreat complex in Tatry Mountains.
The design of the complex focuses on creating a shelter for hikers while becoming a landmark of the area. The designed geometry becomes an always visible point on the horizon and helps hikers determine the direction of their journey, becoming a Lighthouse in the Mountains.
The building rises at the intersection of two hiking trails - yellow and green,
The perfect location makes it a communication hub and stop for tired travelers.
Thanks to the open ground floor, a public square cut off from the weather conditions is created, which is an excellent place for a pitstop with a spectacular view.. It can used by guests of the shelter and trampers passing by.
This project was created as a part of 2nd year Architecture Studies in the Silesian Institute of Technology in Poland
