Salvation Army complete Edinburgh ‘sitooterie’
May 10 2013in collaboration with live-build specialists Tog Studio.
Known as a ‘sitooterie’ the timber volume doubled as a practical learning tool for participants learning how to adopt an active role in the delivery of building projects for their local communities.
Product of a series of workshops the sculptural piece serves as a gathering point for banter, shelter and as a stage for performance and was partially prefabricated at MAKLab.
These components were assembled on site during the course of a single weekend, the second live-build project to be completed by the practice following their work on a Tiree lighthouse.
Tog Studio are also currently developing plans for a new boathouse on Tiree.
Micheal Holliday, architect and director of Tog Studio, said: “Delivering the Sitooterie was an emotional project. It’s been a really intense build and we’ve made new friends along the way. We’ve learnt from each other and worked as a team; which is incredible given the short amount of time we had together.”
