The Castle 2

The Castle 2 by the ocean.
Students: 2009 Learning by Making
Project partner: Youth Futures Inc.

C2 was designed and assembled by 22 students in an intensive 14 day Learning by Making studio, starting with several rounds of rough cardboard models.

This micro-dwelling, built on a dual axle trailer, features a fold-down deck, two sleeping lofts and a large sliding window.

The wall panels, comprising hardwood framing, insulation and plywood, were tested under the supervision of a consulting engineer.

C2 has provided independent accommodation for teenagers in several suburban driveways.
