In 2012 the clients bought a discarded construction trailer from the local municipality with the idea of using it as a place to rest, play or study for them and their two sons.
We decided to completely strip and replace the existing finishings. Inside, the archetypical rounded roof shape is copied and finished in plywood. The outside is covered with small strips of oak. The husk is only interrupted by a large circular opening: a dome-shaped skylight was mounted upon the facade allowing light and the surrounding meadows to enter.
A flexible organization with shelves on different heights was designed for the interior; this way the trailer can be arranged as a place to sleep, as well as to work or play.
