Commons shelter

Project for the architectural competition promoted by Gap Filler is intended to host people gatherings on the Common’s are in the city centre.

The laminated veneer lumber arches connected on the top with a steel ring that serves as gutter. The modules in between are filled with corrugated material either on iron or acrylic in accordance to the direction, responding to wind, sun path and people movement.

Different height seats are placed around the shelter providing a confortable and relaxed atmosphere.

A cloth can be opened to provide rain and sun cover according to the weather.

The whole structure is pre fabricated and can be assembled in one day on site.

Project done in collaboration with Architect Silvia Tavares
