Adorable Wild Thing Cabin is perched in the middle of a rewilding Latvian meadow

The 12 summer school students then set about designing and building the cabin as an observatory for watching the rewilding process. The foundation is constructed of old railway sleepers, and the shingles are recycled rubber railway buffers that separated the sleepers from the metal tracks. All elements were prefabricated offsite and then moved into position for final assembly in the valley to minimize impact. The Wild Thing’s small cabin space is perched nearly 15 feet (4.5 metres) off the ground, and has two benches seating up to six people. Two cabin walls open right up, balanced on counterweights, and the other two sides open a crack. Combined with the open roof, the cabin can either be secluded or an open-air platform for observing the natural surroundings.
