Stockholm-based architectural studio Jägnefält Milton has unveiled Black Lodge, a conceptual low-tech reclusive escape designed specifically for the luxury resort of Furillen on the Swedish island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea. Pyramid in form, the lower sections of each side open up to create what designer Konrad Milton described to Gizmag as "more of a campfire situation."

The simple pine hut is designed to be a contrast to the luxury of Furillen itself, where the old buildings of the limestone quarry have been converted into a hotel. The cabins will be placed in the nearby forest.

"The huts are made of pine trees cut in the same forest as they are standing in," Milton went on. "It's built in an old swedish timber frame technique and warmed by a cast iron stove. The only furniture besides a stool, is a wooden board that can act both as a table, a bench and a bed. All four walls can be opened into the meadow."

It may sound spartan, but that's the idea. Unlike some of the similar concepts we've seen, the Black Lodge cabin is intended for a specific, well-serviced resort, and in that context, it makes perfect sense.

The cabins are set for construction Q4 2012/Q1 2013.
