Communal Cabin

The project is a small sleeping cabin for two people and a gathering room at Sandsletta in southern Norway. The starting point is a clear geometric form where less than one third is the isolated main part. The rest is a gathering room with an outdoor fireplace that provides warmth to the common room and the sleeping area.

The roof is thought of as a prefabricated gluelam structure that is quickly assembled. The roof rests on thin steel columns and the sleeping cabin. The sleeping cabin is thought to be constructed of solid wood elements which are also quickly assembled on site.
