Arkitekthytta in Årjäng has a pointed muzzle that can be pulled all the way into the shell.
Dragspelhuset is a magic, small architectural building, signed by the Dutch architect Maart Maarten Lammers and Boris Zeisser, living in Rotterdam.
The cabin is located by a small lake in Årjäng in southern Sweden, just five miles from Halden.
A moving space fronts the snail
Trailer house name, people in the district have given the cabin because the room in front of the house can be pulled all the way into the shell.
On this video, you see the developer, architect Boris Zeisser in 24 H Architects, presenting the project.
There are not many Norwegian architectural projects such as Mats Dragspelhuset in creativity, but Nesoddenhuset is far from A-4 and the rugged Rennesøyhuset can also take your breath away.
Clean Skin Dress
Only one room in the cabin of the architect
It’s not just the sharp moving room in front of the house that makes us wake up. The interior is also sensational.
Walls and ceilings lined with skinny skin are a sight.
– We would make this summer the holiday home something special, says Maartje and Boris when we visit them in their combined architectural office and residential building in a well-established urban neighborhood smoke not far from the city center of Rotterdam.
An old fishing cabin was the starting point
The unusual cabin shape they have come to be a result of, among other things, Swedish building regulations. These regulate how large and near the water and neighboring boundaries a new building may be.
Here the architect’s starting point was a hundred years old, one-bedroom fishing cabin. It was so close to the shoreline and a pitcher that, according to the regulations, it was difficult to construct a regular extension to the old house.
But the plot was so unique that the two pros with experience from construction projects in both Europe, Africa and Asia bought the old fishing cabin anyway.
Fixed the problem
The creative solution to Zeisser and Lammers simply became clear to make this muzzle room hanging in the loose air.
The view gives the feeling of being on the go
Everything you see is discovery, second-hand and home-made
Thus, the fishing cabin with the muzzle extension does not put a so-called footprint on the site that is larger than the law allows.
How these two Rotterdam architects fulfilled their dream of a holiday in the north, closely linked to nature.
The house can be expanded
– This building can adapt to the seasons and weather conditions and the number of people living in the cabin, says Zeisser to Bonytt. no.
If the weather is warm and the owners have visitors on a visit, the moped room is always pulled out. Just as butterfly larva suddenly breaks out of the coconut shell and turns out the wings when spring comes.
– And it’s in the summer when the cabin is fully drained, and the moped room hangs over the creek that the natural experience on the spot is at its most extreme, the owners tell.
The cabin is in winter fall
In winter, the muzzle room with a rail and pull system is swiveled back in.
This is how the dragon house goes from being 72 square meters to 54 square meters. There will thus be both a smaller area to warm up and two layers of insulating walls in the front of the cabin in the cool parts of the year.
In one with the terrain
Otherwise, Dragspelhuset is characterized by the fact that both ceilings and walls are painted after an old Swedish roofing technique.
The roof slabs are in Canadian cedar. A tree that does not require maintenance, and when it’s burned, it gets an elegant patina that glides into nature around.
This means that after a few years the cabin almost disappears completely in the forest landscape with a few gray scars here and there.
