Glamping for Glampers – to Experience Nature in the Best Conditions

Glamping for Glampers

The shortcomings arisen from the lack of the domestic amenities when you go camping, including toilets and kitchen facilities, has determined the young architectural studio ArchiWorkshop in South Korea, to start a project to come up with solutions to these problems. The designers’desire to give people a chance to experience nature in special conditions led to the advent of tents entitled Glamping for Glampers.

The name is inspired by the growing appetite of tourists to find some charming natural places where they can sleep in tents and have all the facilities. The first tents were installed in Yang – Pyeong, at an appreciable distance from Seoul, in a place surrounded by mountains.

ArchiWorkshop has conceived two types of tents: a long and curved one similar to a “worm” that can be extended and the second was called “donut”, having a circular shape, initially inspired by pebble stones. These tents can be installed in areas with different environmental conditions and relief: mountains, sea, desert, near a river or a lake, in the woods or in the city.

Glamping for Glampers – materials and facilities

Each tent is built on a curved steel frame and is covered with a double layer membrane that protects the interior from UV rays, being at the same time impermeable and fireproof. With an absolute impermeability, the two layers of material provide a good resistance in front of some extreme conditions, regardless of the season. The aesthetic aspect is not neglected and it can be observed both day and night.

The interiors are white, bright fitted with a small bathroom, kitchen and custom-fit bed, that becomes sofa during the day and sleeping bed during the night. The entrances are provided with windows to allow natural light to enter the tent. The wall partition of the toilet, isolated from the rest of the space is painted by a young Korean artist.

The area from the entrance of the tent is open like an “outdoor living room” and it offers the opportunity, for those who wish, to ignite a fire and to prepare a barbecue and various foods. By night, it is similar to a glowing alien spaceship, these tents offer you a pleasant experience in nature and special conditions of comfort and relaxation. Photographs: June Young Lim
