STACKING DOUGHNUT AND MODULAR FLOW : Glamping Architecture, Made in Korea

Archiworkshop as Architects

Glamping Architecture by ArchiWorkshop.kr offers a unique camping experience. Two types of Glamping units with contemporary design positioned in the middle of gentle korean nature. From the Glamping site, you have a view of the valley, miles of forest and the stream.


Concept: Why not create a Glamping that gives people a chance to experience nature closer, while also providing a uniquely designed architecture experience? These questions led to the creation of Glamping Architecture in Korea – a place where nature, ecological values, comfort and modern design are combined for an exciting adventure.


We developed two types of Glamping units.


Stacking Doughnut unit is inspired from pebble stones. And Modular Flow unit is designed for extendable structure by juxtaposing modular floor panels.


These ideas behind stacking Doughnut unit and modular flow unit are to offer high-standard accommodation in various places. We named them sea, dessert, creek, mountain, cave, forest, river and city.


Materials: Glamping unit uses quality membrane which has characters to UV protection, water-proof, fire resistant. Double layered skins provide better resistance against extreme Korean 4 season weather condition.


For the complex geometry of the outer skin, computer animated surface plans are plotted with 2D cutters and welded with a high frequency technique, which gives absolute water tightness. The shape and the position of the structures are carefully considered to give aesthetic emergence during both day and night time.


Interior: Each Glamping unit has toilet booth with art wall finish, which is painted by young Korean artist. The furniture is also designed by ArchiWorkshop.kr which suits well in the limited inner area. The folding furniture becomes sitting sofa during the day and sleeping bed at night.
