The Hut Project

 

The Backcountry Hut Company was founded to assist individuals and organizations in the design and construction of affordable outdoor recreation structures.  

Inspired by the idea of IKEA founder Ingvar Kamprad of providing affordable well-designed products ‘for the many people’, The Backcountry Hut Company provides a turnkey solution to housing through the provision of a pre-fabricated kit of parts with the following characteristics:

 
 
Modular Combine different modules to adjust the size, and adapt the structure for different needs, whether for one person, or a group.

AWARD WINNING ARCHITECTURE

The Backcountry Hut Company has been honoured with a 2016 Canadian Architect Award of Excellence.

"This project is beautifully done. It’s careful about its openings and its allocation of solidity and enclosure, but you don’t get a sense of claustrophobia. The modules combine to make very handsome structures that are beautifully illustrated in the presentation."
