The TCS campsite in Solothurn is testing various original overnight accommodations 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 announced a competition on the subject of “glamping”. The aim was to create new, interesting accommodations that should offer guests a special experience. To do this, they tested various tent variants and lodges over a summer.
We felt immediately addressed by this advertisement and took part in the competition with a 6m yurt including wooden floor and furnishings. Together with our production department, we designed some simple, space-saving and functional furniture especially 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 in such a way that it offered sleeping and seating for 4 people. It was available to guests at the TCS campsite in Solothurn from May to October 2014 and was very well received as accommodation!
After the test phase, we sold the yurt to a friendly couple from Zurich, who took them to Greece. There the yurt is used again as a holiday home.
