The Sledge-Project was designed to shelter people in different locations within the town of Uummanatsiaq in northwestern Greenland. Because the pristine white pod is set on traditionally built sleds, the structure is able to move on icy terrain. If the pod needs to be moved around, it can simply be towed with dogs or a snowmobile.

Made from insulated wood and featuring round windows, the sledge-house can withstand extremely cold temperatures. And though it may be tiny, it remains functional and allows for up to 6 people to be able to sit around, cook and even sleep inside.

The Sledge-Project combines a clever solution for mobility, futuristic aesthetics and an opportunity to engage with Greenland’s amazing landscape.
