As part of my architecture studies at AHO, I participated in the Scarcity & Creativity Studio (SCS) in the spring semester of 2015. This is a masters studio where the students design and build a project for a real client, over the course of 5 intense months.
The projects are chosen through a design competition in 3 phases, After the winner is chosen, the studio works as an architects office producing all necessary drawings, before they spend 4-5 weeks on site, building the project.
The task this semester was to propose a strategy for renovation of 3 existing buildings on a quay in Kleivan, Lofoten, and to design and build an separate sauna, terrace and barbeque area. The buildings are intended to be used as an art and cultural production centre and as rental homes for tourism and all buildings should be possible to use separately and in combination.
The chosen proposal was located at the end of the quay, aiming for a sensitive relation with the landscape and a direct contact with the water. All facilities are contained in a system of three folding bands. The ondulating bands connect the different levels of the site, providing opportunities for lounging, furniture, fish cleaning, dining, barbeque, and when they rise, interior spaces are created, for a sauna, shower and a changing room.
Pictures, these films and a scale model of the project were exhibited at the AHO Works Exhibition in early June, and was nominated for AHO Works Awards for "Excellence in professionalism" and "Excellence in the use of timber"
