We have designed a hut that has potential for extendibility. Each hut can expand and this allows for the connection of multiple huts across the site. A large awning on the front side has the potential to create a public space beneath it when several huts are connected, while still allowing the natural light come inside through the awning’s polycarbonate materiality. The hut can extend according to various needs and have flexible uses. On the outer wall, a unique pattern is applied, which local sheet metal craftsmen create by striking galvalume steel plate. The facade design is based on the structural analysis of the hut, as we aimed to integrate the craftsmanship with the latest technology. A comfortable and livable space is achieved inside with the extensive use of cypress from Okayama.
