The TCS campsite in Solothurn is testing a variety of original accommodation options for one summer.
Location Solothurn SO
Date summer 2014
occasion Test phase «Glamping»
Key data Yurt 6m with wooden floor
In spring 2014 the TCS campsite in Solothurn wrote a competition on the subject of "Glamping". It was about creating new interesting accommodations, which should offer the guests a special experience. For this they tested a variety of tent variants and lodges one summer.
We felt immediately addressed by this call and took part in the competition with a 6m yurt incl. Wooden floor and equipment. Together with our production, we designed a few simple, space-saving and functional pieces of furniture for this project and equipped the yurt with a small solar system that produced electricity for the interior lighting.
The 6m Yurt was set up to provide sleep and seating for 4 people. It was available to guests from May to October 2014 at the TCS campsite in Solothurn and was very well received as accommodation!
After the test phase, we sold the yurt to a sympathetic couple from Zurich who took them to Greece. There, the yurt is used again as a holiday home.
