The Tiny Kiwi Meditation Cabin Competition is part of Bee Breeders’ Small Scale Architecture Appreciation Movement, showcasing small projects that contain big ideas. Designers were tasked with proposing an eco-friendly meditation cabin located alongside the Hauraki Plains in New Zealand for competition partners, Earth Energies Sanctuary.
First prize was awarded to Rabie Al-Ashi and Omar Othman from Saudi Arabia whose three-part ‘Nest’ structure included a series of platforms, a base structure and a semi-translucent, adjustable fabric covering that glows like a lantern in the evening.
Second prize winner Mat Winter from Canada designed a ‘Meditation House’ with a small-footprint volume, clad in frosted glass panels to let in a light yet blur visibility, casting shadows in both directions.
Lukáš Valenčinm and Zuzana Capková from Slovakia took third prize for their ‘Tiny Kiwi Meditation Cabin’ which has a homogenous and simple form with clean lines defined by rows of windows low to the floor, offering clear visibility of nature.
Other awards included: the “Competition Client’s Favourite” award, selected by our competition partner, awarded to Dabeen Kim from Inha Technical College in South Korea; the ARCHHIVE BOOKS Student Award – to Hyeon Gyu Seo, also from the Inha Technical College; and Green Award that was awarded to Matteo Foresti from Sweden.
