Primitive Hut

This image planted the seed for design of the kitchen and bathhouse. It got me thinking about how to use the trees that we will cut on the land to create intimate and natural feeling buildings connected to the land. I really love the feel of this little sitting pavilion and I think this kind of aesthetic could be used all over Destiny.

this "hut" is one of many similiar structures that were build for the resort "pecketts on sugar," which is most famous for having the first public ski school in america. i spent my childhood following old paths finding these structures, there were TONS. up north near franconia, NH there is this whole genre of similiar architecture. some of them were built for hotels and others were built by the infamous abby greenleaf who's family put a hut on top of Mt Lafayette.

Matt - this is one of the things we had talked about in relation to Tea House Ridge ages ago - a primitive structure with seating overlooking the ridge.
