According to the designer,

“The basis of MUD PROJECTS is to breathe new life into old, discarded objects, to draw inspiration from available objects and materials and thus be guided towards new forms and insights. It is important to study the form of the existing object and to let it speak to you in order to transform the object to subjugate the relation to its original purpose.” says Boris Duijneveld from MUD PROJECTS.”

The host features many interesting concepts including a flat tepee with a trampoline for a roof, modern while loft with spherical portholes so that guests could enjoy outdoor viewing. There is a common recreation area to facilitate community interaction along with cooking within the micro-society.
