“The wooden construction made by Aarøsund Boatbuilding is based on traditional shipbuilding techniques in a new form. The load-bearing structure is made up of 8 form-fitting “frames” in oak, with steam-bent rectangular oak moldings as floor and round oak moldings as railings. Hanging shelter has challenged the boat builders and pushed the wood to the extreme – the inner “ring” in the floor is just 900mm in diameter. Hanging Shelter has come into the world through hand sketches, physical models, digital parametric modeling tools, as well as a close interdisciplinary collaboration between architects, engineers and boat builders all from the local area. The light must display and focus on the wood’s properties as a sustainable and climate-friendly material, with both high strength and formability. Here, traditional boat building techniques have been reinterpreted into new interesting shapes and constructions”. Stedse Architects
