The Bentwood Yurt

 

 

 

The Bentwood yurt, or 'oba' as it is called in its native region of Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, has a wonderful sense of 'space'. It has been built on a platform, giving it an elevation which allows a fine view, and is located on the fringes of a mixed woodland.

 

 

The wooden frame for the Bentwood yurt, the walls and the roof timbers, are made of oak. As suggested by its name the timbers used for constructing the roof have been steam bent which has created a dome shaped roof, thus giving the yurt a light, airy atmosphere. This has been covered in a white 12 oz canvas and a marquee lining on the inside which softens the interior of the yurt. The wood flooring is made from locally sourced larch trees.
