In 2012 Kris and Griet bought a discarded construction trailer from the local municipality for a mere € 15. They liked the idea of a mobile garden pavilion, a place for them and their sons to rest, play, study and marvel at the beautiful pasture. The trailer was towed to the back of their garden by a local farmer.
Together with FELT they decided to completely strip the trailer and to replace the existing facade. The trailer was clad with strips of oak, and they added a metre-wide domed window to the far end to create submarine-like views of the surrounding fields. The typical curved roof shape was repeated in the interior and received a plywood finishing.
Wooden runners were attached to the lengths of the walls at even intervals, on which planks of wood can be rested at the different heights. This flexible design allows the owners to create a desk, a low table or even a bed.
The trailer can be arranged as a place to sleep ass well as a place to study or party.
All works were carried out by the clients Kris and Griet with the two sons Miel and Rein, and Hugo‘s father Kris.
