CALTUN Shelter in Fagaras Mountain, Romania by Archaeus Architecture studio

Wednesday, February 24th, 2016

Article source: Archaeus Architecture studio

We had a vague idea about what it meant accepting the challenge to design a shelter at 2,100 m within a restricted budget,  especially since we asked to build it ourselves, based on the 10 year experience of workshops with students at Sky Hill workshop platform.

VIMOB Valle del in Cauca, Colombia by Colectivo Creativo Arquitectos

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015

Article source: Colectivo Creativo Arquitectos

VIMOB was born from the notion of creating a shelter in an area of difficult access; a place where building a traditional construction would be limited by transport of materials and labor. It is a modular housing solution, based on the concept of prefabrication and assembly, capable of holding the essential space of a traditional construction in a practical, flexible, attractive and modern prototype. It is structured from carefully studied modules, articulated with harmony and sobriety in a cozy atmosphere, allowing the enjoyment of the environment and providing an image of high standing.

After purchasing a discarded construction trailer for just €15, owners Kris and Griet together with Ghent-based architect practice Karel Verstraeten have transformed it into an inhabitable space.

Wanting to create a small dwelling that could be used for either studying and resting or partying, the unit was pulled to the back of the garden by a local farmer. Its existing structure was completely stripped back and replaced with new materials.

Fire Shelter: Papay was built during a workshop at the festivalPapay Gyro Nights 2014. The shelter became the heart of the festival and the interior acted as a social and reflective space with a fireplace in the middle and seats along the shelter walls. The shape of the shelter referred to nomadic tents, and the construction created a great acoustics for songs and storytelling. The fire shelter reflected the spirit of the festival; by creating a world of its own where knowledge and poetry were shared.

It acts as a gathering spot for local education programs and provides a practical storage solution. The unique form of the shed was designed to prevent shadows from being cast on surrounding garden plots while at the same time shading the central meeting space.
