A stack of wooden boards, with openings that form a
decorative pattern - this is the motive that inspired the design of this
shelter, outdoor kitchen. The ornamental pattern creates a lightness and
transparency that gives the structure a clear and notable exterior that surely
enhances every garden. The design is specifically modern, while slightly flirting
with historical references. The volume of the building, the detail size and the
materiality of wood creates a clear boundary between the insides of the shelter
and the surroundings. But this boundary is illusionary, only imaginative - the
transparency of the walls ensure contact with the surroundings.
The user is
immersed in nature with all his senses - sounds, daylight, smells, temperature.
By filtering the light and directing views, the screen of the wall plays with
the way we see our surroundings. The character of the screen changes together
with the weather, the time of day, the light and user.
The shelter is constructed out of horizontal, untreated
spruce timber. The design uses only a minimum amount of different size details
which can be assembled even by a novice DIY builder. The manufacturing process
of the shelter is extremely economical in material use and the building
material is from a renewable source. The main design is composed of an open terrace and half
closed area. The latter can be modified into an ancillary room or a summer
shower area. If the ancillary room is not necessary, the terrace part can be
enlarged or be left out of the design.
