For this interesting project, Frazee, the one who designed this whole thing, used the concrete ruins which were already existing there/ The stone chimney and the concrete walls were used as a base for this tiny structure. The actual shelter is a steel and glass box so small that there’s only room for a bed inside. The oxidized steel allows the tiny house to blend in and to become a part of the desert.

The Miner’s Shelter features glass sides and also a glass front door which provide lots of light during the day. During the night, the light comes from candles and oil lamps. Inside all you can find is a bed and a small shelf where candles can be placed. Although it’s very small, this shelter is also wonderfully creative.{found on archinect}.
