The life in wilderness
Going along side with architect Erik JUUL to express architectural vision of upcoming hut in Candian wilderness
’DANISH ARCHITECT BUILDS PUMA AND BEAR-PROTECTED HOUSES IN THE CANADIAN WILDERNESS’
In the last year we have had the privilege of getting some “wild” tasks. The starting points have been different, but they have shared that the builders wanted to challenge the conventional architecture.
It has, for example, been a very narrow townhouse on Christianshavn with an “inner landscape” consisting of “stacked boxes”, a total renovation of an existing cottage, a family house of only 50 m2 and several very expensive villas.
But the multi-level task we got at the beginning of September: “Draw a puma and bear-safe house in the Canadian wilderness”. The developer is a Dane who has lived in and lost his heart to Canada. He has therefore bought a, in Danish context, a very large building site in the Canadian wilderness, where we will build a simple and sustainable house that invites you to enjoy the greatness and tranquility of the Canadian wilderness.
