The creator Gabriela Gomes Portuguese artist and designer presents “Shelter ByGG”, a project that brings out to public space a sculptural object that can be used as a living space.
The module is an experimental object, a “cocoon/bedroom” which seeks to give the user an unexpected experience of a living space. According to the architect, Shelter ByGG allows for “new experiences with space” and questions “relations of artistic enjoyment and habitation issues.”
The module features a double room with integrated WC. Denoting environmental concerns, it was built with non-polluting and recycled materials – OSB, cork -, and uses solar energy and LED lighting.
