Inspired by the cave in which King Arthur and his knights sought refuge, Arthur's Cave Cabin isn't a cave at all. Instead it's a contest-winning pop-up accommodation designed to celebrate the Welsh landscape. It's clad in locally-sourced slate cutoffs that cover layers of CNC-cut plywood sandwich panels. Inside, a series of birch-face plywood ribs mimics the curves of a real cave, while sheep wool stuffed in between provides insulation, a fireplace provides warmth, and the glass front provides views of the countryside.
