ToyStudio’s Kota and Sami at Houghton Festival 2018



An open fire welcomes the visitor to Kota, a flat-pack and CNC routed plywood hut built by London based collective Toy Studio for 2018?s Houghton festivals. Inspired by traditional Nordic Sami huts and old log construction, the name Kota is a derivation of a Finnish word for ?shelter?.

Each aspect, from its geometry to its fabrication is parametrically detailed using computer-aided design. The desired form is refined to accommodate specific requirements, size constraints, client budget, and maximum efficiency. Sami was designed to complement a previous installation entitled Kota; it is an architecture that brings a contemporary spirit to natural surroundings, providing an example of space and shelter in its most basic form.Kota is 5.5m tall and has a diameter of 3.2m. It is comprised of 56 planar ribs, which are formed through 174 individual components CNC?d from 18mm plywood. Sami is smaller at 3m high and 4m wide, with 24 planar ribs. The ribs are assembled via a series of lapped dovetail scarf joints and inter-screw bolt connections. Once assembled it is fixed to the ground with a nu...
