Hut-to-Hut Prototype

Rintala Eggertsson architects prototype in Karnataka, India

“The hut was developed in a design- and building workshop with students from the University of Technology in Trondheim following an international seminar about the future of eco-tourism in the Western Ghats region in India. The main aim was to find solutions which would benefit the local population specifically and the environment of the region in general.
The concept was to make the hut as environmentally friendly as possible by using locally produced, materials and renewable energy sources. This would then simplify both production and maintenance of the buildings in the long run.”
