Update: WOODPILE / Noa Biran + Roy Talmon

© Henk Von Pickartz

A couple of months ago we showed you Noa Biran and Roy Talmon’s design for the Warming Huts Competition, which asked for ideas for shelter to be constructed along the Assiniboine River in , . The project was constructed and the architects shared with us some great photos. Check them all after the break.

    Concept itself is nice… But… Untill the end of winter this shalter bicame smaller and smaller… Providing less and less safety…

    Looks cool, but after a rain/snowfall one would have to bring dry wood with them as the fuel source has been left to the elements….


    Neither comment is a design flaw. Wood supply could have been restocked at any time.

    Also regarding the wood being exposed to the elements, Winnipeg winters are very cold. No worry about rain and even a heavy snowfall wouldn’t effect the burnability of the wood. Wood doesn’t get wet from snow if the temp us sub zero.

    Great project!

    Beautiful relationship between form and function! Very poetic! Wish I could visit.

    Looks pretty cool. And I still doubt that if it can be use as a BBQ hut as well.
