That’s how Ark-Shelter was born. Ark gives you an escape and a shelter to protect you. Our appreciation for low-tech architecture has created a home that everyone can enjoy. At first, it was a shelter, a cocoon without TV, a silent place to reconnect with and appreciate nature, a cozy home where you could find yourself.
Afterwards we realized that our homes have to be more oriented to our biological rhythms. Our designs are easily adaptable to the different stages in your life, and transform with sides that fold open. Our Arks adjust to the landscape and become an extension of nature.
With our unique designs, we want people to recharge in a minimalist space and focus on the here and now. At the same time, our Arks also help you reconnect with nature. You can, for instance, fall asleep under the night sky in your Ark-Shelter with a big glass ceiling.
We generate houses in which people can rediscover their lost sense of daily life and restore their natural biorhythms.— Martin Mikovčák/ Ark-Shelter architect
Our Arks help you reset your natural biorhythm. Sleep under the skylight, wake up rested with sunrise and get back in touch with nature and yourself.
Our Arks are built to expand, contract and move. Our modular system is in a constant flux.
Living in a shelter is living in the environment. Being in an Ark is being in harmony with your environment. Our Arks can function off the grid.
We work with durable wooden skeleton structures that last decades. Our Arks shelter you from the elements and allow the elements to shine.
Our Arks are equipped with smart, simple technology to keep you focused on what matters.
