새롭게 재구성된 모바일 하우스; 템퍼러리 쉘터는 유목문화의 향취를 재현, 아웃도어 레크레이션을 제공한다. 이전 유목생활을 위한 공간과 유사한 외형과 내부 구성은 중심부에 위치한 화덕을 기점으로 자리할 수 있는 벤치가 배치된다. CNC 커팅된 플라이우드와 폴리카보네이트는 3.8 지름에 4.7미터 높이의 돔의 형태로 구현되며 가죽을 덧 붙여 구성한 것과 같이 백색의 폴리카보네이트 연결재를 피스결합으로 디자인한다. 두개의 출입구와 상부의 오프닝은 사람들의 출입을 용이하도록 돕는 역활과 내부 화덕으로 피어 오르는 연기를 배출하는 스모그 오프닝으로 기능한다. 여기에 상부에 설치된 투명한 폴리카보네이트는 솔리드한 돔형태의 공간 속에 주간에 태양빛을 유입시키는 채광창 역활과 야간시 이곳을 여행하는 여행자의 안내를 도우는 라이트 하우스로 디자인된다.

Fire Shelter 0:1 is a solo project designed and built by Simon Hgermind
Jensen of SHJWORKS. It was important to Simon to do it himself so that
there would be no outside influence from concept to completion. It is a
personal project that represents Simon's fascination with a location
that is a 20-minute bike ride from Copenhagen, Denmark on a landfill
called Sydhavnstippen. The shelter is not meant to be more then a
temporary dwelling that, once past its prime, will be removed
completely. It is a stopping place for visitors to celebrate the
surrounding elements of landscape and nature that have populated what
was once a seabed, then from 1945 to 1973 it became a growing landfill
of building materials, and now it is a park like setting of plants,
bushes and trees and the occasional trace of exposed and uncovered
building materials. The landfill that still pushes up through the
greener creates an almost apocalyptic visual within the desolate
The construction of Fire Shelter 0:1 is based on the architectural
principles found in ethnic and nomadic cultures. It is a singular dome
like shape of plywood and polycarbonate panels that have been fabricated
using CNC technology. The panels are "stitched" together to create a
4.7m tall dome with a 3.8m diameter base. The panels themselves are from
2 - 9mm thick and consist of thin and bendable shells that are
tightened together with bolts and a piece of 2mm thick polycarbonate
"stitching". There are two entry locations around the base and a large
hole at the top for fire smoke extraction.
From Simon's original concept of using ethnic and nomadic building
principles within the realm of modular design and easy to apply
materials, the final result takes on a imagery of leather panels hand
Fire Shelter 0:1 incorporates a plywood floor and a central fire pit
that is surrounded by a bench. The bench was created with scavenged
building materials from the landfill site. The flooring creates ballast
that secures the shelter to the ground without any disruption of the
The upper section of the dome is constructed with a white transparent
polycarbonate that allows sunlight to enter the inner volume by day and
the light from the fire inside to glow externally by night, creating a
lighthouse beacon effect for those travelling nearby.
While the dome is experimentation with temporary structural solutions,
the idea of offering a shelter as a gift to anyone who wishes to use it
in the coldest months of the year, creates a social experiment as well.
With a roof overhead, and a fire to sit around while enjoying the
solitude of nature, Fire Shelter 0:1 is a place where friends can come
together and enjoy each other's company without the distractions of
modern day comforts.
Simon is proud of his creation from a singular vision. The design and
production was paid through his firm SHJWORKS and the assemblage was all
done without the use of ladders. The assemblage was the only area that
required assistance, as it was a was not a one-person job. This is where
Christian Bocker Sorensen and others helped out.
With the focus on the shelter being temporary, the construction was such
to make the deconstruction as simple as possible. The hope is that Fire
Shelter 0:1 will last for at least one year, if not longer, but when
the shelter starts to break down, Simon will give his second gift to the
land by deconstructing it in such a way that there will be no trace of
its ever having existing.
Had Simon presented his concept for Fire Shelter 0:1 through the
standard bureaucratic channels, the chances of it ever being built are
about as slim as you can get. This is a one of the driving reasons he
chose to create his unique and uncompromising shelter without any
subjectivity toward compromise.
It is hard to believe that Simon created this project without any
outside help. No advice was asked for and no outside opinion was sought.
The project was truly a one man show and is his gift to the people and
the land brought on by Simon's own immense fascination with the history
and transformation of the site itself. It is his homage to the strength
of nature to reclaim what was hers all along.
