FANTON 2661

The project is based on the concept that the first and most simple admission of those who live the mountain is the tent camp.
Lightweight, easily transportable and sufficiently protective.
So you can go very high up to the limits of human.
Then the curtain is to us a reference, particularly for ease of transportation.
It is not easy to pitch a tent under the fork Marmarole, down the slope that leads to Val Da Rin because the terrain is rugged.
Then the tent needs of legs that are adapted to the soil and that the sorreggano firmly.
Thus was born the idea of ​​building four wooden trestles that anchor in eight fixed points and does not claim that the ground is level for them.
Indeed, the legs are a little longer than it takes.
No matter, you cut on site to fit the slope.
So the shelter will be of little suspended and will leave the water running beneath him and, in the winter snow will accumulate around but it will not be hard to dig a shelter under his belly.
But this tent "rigid" is not even symmetrical, facing north and south with roofs of different slopes. A less steep south to accommodate the panels that will give us that little bit of energy we need.
To the north is closed and steep, as the mountains around.
West entrance, slightly back, to leave a niche of luck always available even if the shelter was closed.
To the east the large window overlooking the valley and allows the sun to penetrate the first dawn in the shelter to mark that it is time to leave and leave.
Inside two floors, compass access to the equipment and boots, a room almost independent for four people, several closets and equipment rooms and lunch at the sight of the mountains.
At the center of the ladder leading to the loft where there are seven comfortable beds overlooking the level below.
