HyggeHouse - 2013

From Warming Huts at The Forks

Team: Plain Projects, Urbanink, Pike Projects, Winnipeg ---- HyggeHouse is cozy. It is a simple wood framed structure; a reproduction of one of the most cherished symbols of Canadiana -- the wilderness cottage. Within HyggeHouse, artifacts of cottage life set the stage for an authentic depiction of the comfor and familiarity of the weekend getaway. The entire interior of HyggeHouse is painted fluorescent yellow. Coating the contents not only creates a warm, inviting space, sheltered from the wind -- it also creates a stage set where the visitors to HyggeHouse become essential components of the experience. Although the House is full of mounted antlers and fish, warm blankets, a working wood stove, old baseball hats, comic books, plaid shirts, and old tins of matches, Hygge is only truly achieved with people come together. Hygge House becomes a place for warmth and togetherness.
