Katus.eu e Lasita Maja AS lanciano il concorso internazionale di design architettonico per cercare soluzioni qualitative, originali e innovative per la creazione di moderni chalet prefabbricati e casette da giardino in legno, in vista di una loro distribuzione sul mercato europeo. Il concorso vuole, inoltre, introdurre gli architetti nella tecnologia produttiva di Lasita Maja AS e rafforzare al collaborazione tra i professionisti e l'azienda produttrice.

I progetti vincitori, oltre a un premio in denaro, avranno la possibilità di instaurare un rapporto di collaborazione a lungo termine durante il quale si procederà alla creazione dei prodotti ideati, guardando contemporaneamente al design, alla qualità e alle esigenze del mercato. 

Il bando richiede ai concorrenti di cimentarsi in una delle seguenti 3 tipologie di chalet: • con incastro angolare tradizionale, •  con costruzione a sistema murario e •  con costruzione a muro componibile.

Il concorso, aperto ad architetti, ingegneri, paesaggisti, designer e gruppi nei quali almeno uno dei componenti rientri in una delle precedenti categorie, si svolge in una sola fase e in forma anonima.

The object of the current architectural design competition is to develop high quality modern and innovative architectural designs of prefabricated wooden cabins that could be distributed all across Europe in collaboration with the producers of log and element cabins.

In addition, the purpose of the contest is also to introduce the production technology of Lasita Maja AS to architects and thus to aim to strengthen the collaboration between architects and manufacturers.

The winning project(s), as well as other design proposals of quality will be developed further in order to elaborate functional end products that will correspond to the market demand. Herewith Lasita Maja AS and Arhitektuurikaubamaja OÜ are inviting you to participate in the competition. We are looking forward to active participation and to receiving interesting, innovative and inspiring designs.

Lasita Maja AS uses different types of wall constructions and thus the prefabricated cabins are divided in 3 different groups/families:

  • cabins with traditional corner connection
  • cabins with system wall construction
  • cabins with sectional wall construction

First the participants of the competition are asked to decide on the constructional type, and then propose design solutions for all 5 cabin types within the same family.
