Les Guetteurs, designed by Bruit du Frigo, imitates the owls in the region. The frame is made of circular plywood, the exterior was created with strips of curved wood and shingles cut to look like feathers. Inside the owls, there are three levels connected by ladders and several beds that look like nests. Every shelter can host up to nine people.
There is no electricity or water access, only beds and a common space. This wood and shingles refuge is built on a pier with a deck that overlooks a wetlands area. This ECO-friendly idea is to promote urban hiking as a local open air activity which is accessible to anyone by offering free nights in the shelters.
