Sand Frukt og Bær: A Simple Pavilion with Wooden Oak Columns and Four Roof Trusses

Sand Frukt Og Bær 2

Located among the other buildings of the Sand Farm in Sandefjord, Norway, this cabin is designed as a simple pavilion with a new interpretation. R21 Arkitekter reinterprets the building to satisfy modern demands with the same footprint of an annex building. Completed in 2018 with 80 m², Sand Frukt og Bær offers a unique look with the wooden (oak) columns and its four roof trusses.

A new interpretation is given to this project under different circumstances with loadbearing wooden (oak) columns applied on the outside of the glass wall. The house construction stands on a concrete basement. It consists of four roof trusses, stiffened by a rigid core containing kitchen and bathroom. These four roof trusses are also supported by the wooden (oak) columns.

The top core of the house is a mezzanine. As a simple pavilion, the building opens in the summertime including the outdoor kitchen under a large roof. It is possible for the flexible outer shell to close the building using wooden shutters in various degrees to the surroundings of the site.
