Traveling To The Bordeaux Region Of France? Be Sure To Check Out These Owl Cabins.

Many people don't realize that spending quality time outside is incredibly good for you health. It helps reduce stress, increases your vitamin D intake, and can even help increase brain functions. Going camping, heading to the beach, or even just taking a long walk, are awesome ways to get in tune with nature. In the Bordeaux region of France, a group of artists have created shelters for people to spend time in while experiencing nature firsthand. Check out these incredible shelters, and if you ever find yourself in France, you may want to make a reservation!

In the southwest region of France, an amazing group of artists have come together.

This group includes artists, architects, photographers, and urbanists. What they've done will blow your mind!

They've created Refuges Périurbains, or Peri-urban shelters.

Peri-urbanisation is the combination of town and country life. For example, a city that's in the middle of a mountain chain.

The artists have created six different shelters.

The most breathtaking of the six are the “Les Guetteurs” or “The Watchers." They're a series of three owls and they're certainly incredible.

The owls were designed, and constructed, by Bruit du Frigo's partner, Zebra3/Buy-Sellf.

They were actually inspired by ground-dwelling owls in the region, called a brachyote. They're a relatively small owl that builds its nest on the ground.

The structure is entirely made from plywood.

The frame was built into a circular shape. It was intended to look just like an owl's body.
