The Corkshack is a structure based on the dwellings of the Bronze and Iron Age people of more than two thousand years ago, but with a modern and natural twist.
The Corkshack project was conceived by Dewi Jones — a graphic designer originally from Wales — and his wife Clare. They wanted to reconstruct the medieval roundhouses of the local area in Alentejo, Portugal and make them the focal point of their luxury eco glamping business.
Wood is used to build the main frame of the 25sqm decagon Corkshack, and the exterior walls covered with cork, an excellent natural thermal and acoustic insulator. Natural broom was sourced to thatch the conical roof.
