Nomadic Dwelling | The Flake House | Olgga Architectes
Created in 2006 for the competition “Petites machines à habiter” held by the CAUE 72, OLGGA’ proposal for this nomadic wooden shelter is based on the concept of the «folie», where the wooden structure is broken in two halves establishing a radical spatial boundary while materializing an unexpected entry sequence.
An object, recalling a broken branch, whose unconventional scale is the main idea of the project: to be built-up, taken down, moved,put down, left behind or taken along, inhabited or left to it’s surrounding.
The Flake house will be located on the site of Frossay (Le Carnet).
I.C.I.! (Instant Carnet Island) is a temporary refuge of micro-architectures and light habitat meeting based on the bank of the Loire and open to anybody. .......more
