Beaver Center (Nature Conservation Center Sotla)

Bobrov center is an ecological-educational-tourist destination for nature observation and presentation along the Sotla river. The building follows the topography next to the dry lake depression and partly levitates over the slope.
This wooden container pavilion with walk-through spaces and platforms with a central viewing staircase and a walk-on roof has an info-point with a snack bar, a study room, a gallery and a lecture room.
The construction is wooden. The larch façade interprets vernacular architecture and relates to the surrounding cultural and natural landscape.
