https://player.vimeo.com/video/151364983

This great tiny house on Slovenian mountain called Skuta Cabin is a product of cooperation between students of Harvard University and OFIS Architects from Ljubljana. Students supposed to offer 12 proposals which will give the best solutions for inhabitants and mountaineers, but also to meet the needs of the wild terrain conditions!

Ova divna malena kuća na slovenačkoj planini nazvana Skuta Cabin je plod saradnje studenata Univerziteta Harvard i OFIS arhitektonskog studia iz Ljubljane. Studenti su trebali ponuditi 12 prijedloga, koji će dati najbolje rješenje za stanovnike i planinare, ali i  odgovarajući dizajn, koji bi zadovoljio uslove divljeg planinskog  terena!

New design was the replacement of the 50 years old building. ‘Within a context of extreme risk to environmental forces, it is important to design buildings that can withstand extreme weather, radical temperature shifts, and rugged terrain.’ – Wrote OFIS architects.

Novi dizajn je bio zamjena oko 50 godina starom objektu. “U kontekstu ekstremnih rizika uzrokovanih prirodnim nepogodama, bilo je važno da dizajn objekta bude prilagođen ekstremnim vremenskim uslovima, radikalnim temperaturnim razlikama i nepristupačnim terenima. ‘- Napisali su OFIS arhitekti.

‘The design consists of three modules, in part to allow for transport and also to pro-grammatically divide the space. The first is dedicated to the entrance, storage and a small space for the preparation of food. The second one provides space for both, sleeping and socializing while the third features a bunk sleeping area.’

‘Dizajn se sastoji od tri modula, kako bi se omogućio  jednostavniji transport i kako bi prostor funkcionalno bio podijeljen. Prvi dio je služi kao ulaz, skladištenje i mali prostor za pripremu hrane. Drugi osigurava prostor je za spavanje i druženje, dok treći ima samo krevete za spavanje. ‘

‘Although the scale of the bivouac is small, the project required a lot of effort and planning from over sixty participants who were mostly volunteers and sponsors. All would agree that, despite the small size, it was no less demanding than any large building project. However, all of the effort and planning for this small scale project is meant to keep the memory, spirit and culture of the mountains as a special place for Slovenians.’

‘Iako je objekat površinom mali, za razradu i izvedbu projekta bilo je potrebno puno truda i planiranja, u kojem je učestvovalo preko šezdeset osoba koji su bili uglavnom volonteri i sponzori. Svi će se složiti da, bez obzira na male dimenzije, izrada nije bila ništa manje zahtjevna nego izgradnja bilo kojeg velikog građevinskog projekta. Međutim, svi napori i planiranje ovog projekta imali su za cilj da očuvanje uspomene, duha i kulture planina kao posebnog mjesta za sve Slovence.’
