Le Tronc Creux du Frigo
- Esther Jablotschkin
‘The Tronc Creux’ by Bruit du Frigo is part of a series of shelters spread around Bordeaux.

For this purpose the small shelters of the Tronc Creux were developed. Featuring an undulating façade of cut-out windows and black wooden details marking its exterior, the structure is atypical to most mountain refuges. However, it still provides a similar atmosphere and purpose, and on the interior there is enough space to sleep for 9 people. Reconnecting to a simple life, there are no lights and no water, just family and friends in a peaceful setting, right next to their homes.
