This object is an evolution of a WWII fortification extension project built in 2017. Since the original cabin was nearing the end of its service life, we wanted to try and improve the accomodation standards by implementing the same principals as we did with the first extension-such as minimalisation of building processes, including the locals in the building process etc.

There was no need to make changes to the prooven form, so the changes were made mainly to the structural principles, surfaces, technologies and insulation.

The most commonly used current timber construction methods try hide their bearing structure and so the most elememtary members of the structure aren´t visible to the user. In case of this project, the structural timber is exposed to the interior and the rest of the wall´s layers are placed outsdide the bearing structure.

To acomplish the required structured effect of the interior surfaces, the interior siding is made of smooth planed timber planks. In contrast, the exterior siding is made of rough untreated larch boards, that will quickly age grey and allow the object to naturally blend to the surrounding greenery.
