Degree of Freedom is an international civil and structural engineering practice with offices in Oslo, Valencia and Athens. We design bridges, buildings and special structures, in timber, steel, and concrete. We are architecture oriented and innovative.
Degree of freedom collaborated with Carl-Viggo Hølmebakk architects for the competition organized by DNT to design a new trekking cabin on Tungestølen (near the glacier Jostedalsbreen, Norway). The architects proposed one long volume, organized in two floors under a continuous roof. The result is an efficient and sober building.
The structure consists of 18 modules placed on strip foundations of concrete. The 19 primary transverse portals, made with mass laminated timber, will span 9,0m and are placed at a 3,25m distance. This provides a simple main structure that can be completed with secondary structures in several different ways. The transverse portals that forms the primary structure of the construction are capable to resist all the vertical and lateral loads on the system. The longitudinal panels at the roof and exterior walls connecting the transverse portals will provide necessary longitudinal resistance.
