Urnatur In Sweden: Shows Us What It Feels Like To Dream A Different Life - Off The Grid

Categories: Inspiration

Charchoaler’s hut


The hut is inspired by ancient charcoaler’s huts with a timbered frame and turf roof. The hut with its mossy roof vanishes into the surrounding forest. Originally these huts were built as protection against wild animals, weather and wind, with at least the means for cooking a cup of coffee. The charcoalers hut is – just as these huts used to be – small, dark and hence very cozy. To emphasize its simplicity, its Spartan feel, we have designed and built iron beds with a gulag-feel for the hut. The hut offers a roof over your heads and warmth. An earthy shelter for those who really wish a break from the everyday life.

Hat cabin

hattstuga och pilgrimstuga i Urnatur«s skogseremitagehattstugan_int

The hat cabin is a six-cornered bole house with a copper roof. All furniture is designed and built by Niclas Hallberg for Urnatur, inspired and cross-pollinated by Japanese style and Swedish craftsmanship. The cabin is spacious with a high ceiling and a chandelier thatlights up the room. Beds can either set into a double bed or pull apart into two single beds.Ravens are hovering above the copper roof.

From the hat cabins guestbook: Beautiful, wonderful and totally renewing. Thank you for having us here at Urnatur. The hattstuga was just perfect. We slept and rested like babies. Loved meeting you and the other guests. Loved swimming, row-boating, showering in the sunshine, feeling the soft mossy earth, listening to the birdsongs at dawn, breathing in this leaf-filtered air. This is how life should be! All the time. Thank you for inspiration that we will take with us back to Stockholm and beyond. We look forward to returning this autumn. Until then, be well //Bethany & Alfredo
