MUSGUM HUTS 2.0

He iconism of “la case Obus” called locally: Teleuk stands as undeniable proof of the strength and the local creativity of the Mousgoum people who knew how to master their environment and transcend the available materiality.

These Huts stand up and form a uniquely picturesque landscape to visualize.

Aware of the power of this symbol, our approach embraces the language and adapts it to a new scale: That linked to demography and the constant rise of water in the region.

GROWTH BY SCALE

The hut was on average 25m high, the building, the Mousgoum 2.0 tower that we are proposing is erected to 125 m by combining with a wider radius.

The hut becomes a tower, and the village a hut adapted to the requirements of the SDGs while respecting uses and modernity…

” L’ancien est durable; contextualisé par le paramétrage des solutions qu’il propose, un facteur d’échelle peut être affecté par la force et le savoir-faire de la conception (..) C’est une option importante pour proposer des architectures durables ” Cedrix Tsambang, 2017
