scs: nes cabin prototype
Nes Kommune i Akershus is an agricultural and timber producing municipality to the north east of Oslo with a
population of 20 000 people. With the aim of opening up new forms of agricultural settlements and raising its
environmental and design profile Nes has approached SCS in order to set up a long term cooperation
The first project to emerge from this cooperation is for the design and build of a prototype of a small holiday
cottage to be installed in local farms in order to increase farmer’s income by renting them out in the summer. This
project was undertaken by The Scarcity and Creativity Studio during the Fall semester of 2014.
