Zip Hut

Lifeboat Studio designed a modular space that can pop up anywhere, designed to be easily assembled, but also taken apart. The idea proposes an affordable space solution, conceived to work around planning limitations: insulated, weather-proof and secure, the hut is also able to be transported in a transit van and put up by 2-3 people in 5 hours. The prototype system is being developed around the innovative use of Zip Bolts, compressing Structurally Insulated Panels into position. The Zip Hut is heavily inspired by the Liina Transitional Shelter research project, by the Aarhus Wood Program. Ongoing.
