Desjardins Yurt village

Village de Yourtes

Many nomads in Central Asia use yurts as habitat. This round tent is made of a wooden frame on which is stretched a solid and insulated canvas. It has a single room, lit by a skylight at the top. The large windows give the impression of being surrounded by nature in a rustic environment. The wood stove provides comfort and warmth in winter.
