The Artificial Snow Cave Hut

The hut offers a snowdrift frame made from weighted carbon fiber mesh, this contoured landscape mimics the surrounding vertiginous precipices and landscapes, the carbon fiber snowscape creates an artificial snow cave which can be dug into and around enabling climbers to inhabit the structure in a similar way to a snow cave.

Hut Near the Lac de Joux in Le Pont, Switzerland by Kunik de Morsier architectes

Thursday, April 9th, 2015

Article source: Kunik de Morsier architectes

It is in the very special geography of the Swiss Jura, near the Lac de Joux (which freezes over in Winter), close to the ski slopes, hiking trails and bike routes where the R. family wished to settle. It is in this very special universe that the architects designed a singular space in response to the location and needs of the family by establishing strong relationships between inner spaces and territory.

Barn in Maxov by Martin Rajniš, Kamila Amblerová

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

Article source: Martin Rajniš, Kamila Amblerová

The walls are built in the lumber stack method (beam – sticker – beam). Nothing is nailed together! The beams are laid freely across each other. Nothing is sawed! The sawmill supplies four- and five-meter beams, whatever is excess can simply stick out at the corners. Stickers are made from three layers of laths – in place of the middle layer, we place at the corner a transverse beam. And look – it’s standing all by itself! Floor, ceiling, roof framework are formed from beams in a coffering system of transverse beams with their side-runners tied in place with twisted bailing wire. The roof covering is of plywood “dry-mounted” with laths and bailing wire. The building stands on stakes of tree-trunks positioned on oak slabs. Brace the building with steel wire and anchor it with eight pipes hammered into the ground. And we have our woodshed.

The Kežmarská Hut in Mountains High Tatras, Slovakia by ATELIER 8000

Friday, October 17th, 2014

Article source: ATELIER 8000


ATELIER 8000 participated in the international architectural competition for a new Kežmarská chata (the Kežmarská Hut) in the High Tatras.

The competition entry developed by our studio proposes a succinct shape of a simple cube which is seated on one of its vertices and aims at inducing a feeling of lightness and randomness in the observer. Due to its position within the landscape the cuboid evokes an erratic block left behind by the retreating glacier. In the context of mountain peaks the sharp edges of the building merge into the outline of the neighbouring rocks when viewed from distance and thus naturally join the landscape of the site.

Meditation Hut II “Le Cadeau” in Urbana, Illinois by Jeffery S. Poss, Architect

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

Article source: Jeffery S. Poss, Architect

The hut is located in back corner of a residential garden, nestled in a mature landscape.   For the designer-owner-builder, the experience of its creation was a retreat both from work and into work – the hands-on construction process in itself was cathartic.

Sunday, July 28th, 2013

Article source: Tato Architects

I made a public toilet at ShodoshimaIslandas a part of the project of Setouchi Art Festivalin which I came to participate from this time. The site is in the area called “Hishio-no-sato (Native place of sauce)” where pre-modern architecture of soy sauce making warehouse remains collectively most in Japan. These warehouses are authorized as registered tangible cultural property, where soy sauce has been made still in the old-fashioned formula.Framing of a traditional cabin and large cedar barrels on the floor are the characteristic scene.

Barn Krnany in Czech Republic by e-MRAK

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

Article source: e-MRAK

I work in the studio of Martin Rajniš for more than a year. Did my opponent’s thesis at the Academy of Fine Arts. Personally, I did not know the professor. Martin, as he introduced himself at the very beginning is a very straight man. They all relate to him and offered me if I do not want himto do some time. May said the next morning I come to see him in office. What I had to say?Scheduled holidays did not take place.
