With a limited budget and access to recycled materials from a local construction site, a Norwegian architecture firm Haugen/Zohar knows how to do it right when building a fire pit for the community to enjoy. This structure is not only innovative but is also derived from the cultural traditions of Norway keeping their heritage alive in a beautiful fashion.
Inspired by the traditional Norwegian ‘turf hut‘, this fire pit structure is mounted on a concrete base made of 80 layers of circles all the way up to the tip top. Each circle has 28 pieces of pine that vary in size and give the hut its own unique look. They wanted to give the structure a chimney effect allowing it to create its own natural lighting and also function as a way to dry the pine.
This fire pit is a place for the community to gather and tell stories while being able to enjoy the crisp winter air in a comfortable fun fashion. Lit up at night this hut looks like a beautiful glowing dollop in the cool winter night.
