Rolling Huts

January 25th, 2011




Have you ever seen a rolling house? Maybe you’ve seen a rolling castle on Robin Hood Men in Tights, but Olson Kundig Architects have created rolling huts that you can actually live in. The huts are low-impact to the nature and sit in a flood plain in a river valley near Mazama, Washington.

The huts are grouped much like a herd of cattle and are mainly used as weekend retreats. You can actually put a reservation on one of the huts for $125 per night. Each hut is equipped with a small refrigerator, fireplace and Wi-Fi.

Check out more information on the Rolling Huts website.

    What a fantastic concept! I’d like to stay there. Grass a bit patchy, don’t like the view, roll it somewhere else.

    Man, I know where I am going for my next vacation.

    Their website is a bit kitschy though. I was expecting something that reflected the clean, angular architecture.

    @Matt, totally. At $125 a night for two people you can’t really go wrong. The area is beautiful as well.

    I want to buy one (without the wheels, even) as a cabin / forest studio getaway prefab-home idea.

    Yeah, shame about that website…

    the design is very simple. the structural framing are even simpler. the building materials used are not costly. a plus on the great use and consideration of anthropometrics. my overall rating- simplicity makes it perfect. excellent work!
