DublDom was created and installed as a gift for the town of
Kandalaksha and for Alexander Trunkovkiy that have won the
competition "Find your place 2016". The contestants had to show
photos of their place and tell why DublDom should be installed
there. The winner was chosen following the next criteria: future
function of the house, social importance and life perception of
the participant. We had more than 500 applications and we've
chosen Alexander Trunkovkiy that has suggested to install
DublDom at the hillock Volosyanaya near Kandalaksha and use it
as a shelter for tourists and lovers of the active leisure.

The project is based on the standard modules of DublDom and the
interior space was fully re-designed so it can be used in the
mountains. It was only possible to install the house by using a
helicopter, so the whole construction was made using the highest
standards of durability and energy efficiency with the minimum
weight at the same time. Due to combining high-tech materials we
managed to halve the weight of the modules. The materials and
the coating are calculated to be used at the low temperatures
and high wind loads.

The interior space is meant to be used for 8 people at once. The
rack-beds are made around the perimeter of the central room and
there is a table in the middle so everyone can gather together.
All the rack-beds are designed so they can be taken off. The
space underneath the beds is designed for storage. The hall can
be used for storing the outerwear. Minimalistic colour spectrum
was used in order not to distract from the main accent - the
view from the window.
The panoramic window is oriented to the south, revealing the
Kandalaksha gulf with the islands. The sun fills up the inner
space with the light and warmth, thus passively heats the house.
The house is installed on the metal frame, that rests on the
stony terrain through the six pillars thus creating the visual
perception that the house is off the ground and that the nature
intervention is minimal.
DublDom will work as a shelter for tourists. There are lot of
cycling and water routes and hiking trails in the summer. There
is yachting sport in the Kandalaksha gulf. The rivers leading to
the gulf are used for river rafting and fishing. In winter,
boundless and wide open spaces are becoming the places for
ski-tours, and snowmobiles.
