This month the studio developed a design for a temporary and transportable refuge for hikers in Iceland.

The title of our proposal Vegvísir symbolises protection. It was believed that the wearer of this symbol wouldn’t get lost and would always find their way home. The plan of the cabins references the cross circular geometry of the Vegvisir symbol, a late medieval bind-rune that was a magic sigil to prevent the bearer from getting “lost in the storm”. This sets the tone for the significance and importance of the cabins in Norse mythology and its ambition as a place of safety, refuge and shelter.

In response we looked to create an object that held within its iconography a deep symbolic connection with the culture of Iceland.

We have been awarded planning permission for a small annex extension to one of the first houses we ever built. This little piece moves away from our former design sensibilities, but simultaneously compliments the existing house materially, and formally.

It is important to kick back and enjoy the finer things in life. When the sun shines in South Wales the sea calls. Balancing work life with the contemplative beauty of paddle boarding on the Gower peninsula.
