BIG Vollebak, an experimental clothing brand, has shared an off-site concept on a self-contained island in Nova Scotia, Canada. The island will host several pavilions constructed with natural and innovative materials such as seaweed, hemp and 3D printed concrete, all carbon neutral energy. The island, located in Jeddore Harbour, will be auctioned off Nova Scotia’s fourth coast by Sotheby’s Concierge Auctions beginning June 8. Competitive prices for the island’s ability to own and exclusive rights to obtain a design vision, including a license for those design plans.

Vollebak Island will include the ‘Land House’, a 597 square meter structure made up of nine interconnected buildings, and the ‘Timber House’, an 88-square meter structure with a separate garden on the island’s beach. A combination of wind harvesting, geothermal and solar power generated by the power structure on the island, with excess power stored in the Tesla power walls. This ensures that all of the island’s energy needs can be met in a carbon-neutral way.

House of Earth is conceived as a set of buildings in the form of a village that gradually rises from the land in the middle of the island. The permeable plan is designed to encourage socialization and allows nature to interweave with architecture. Each building represents a different piece of nature in the dominant material used. The living and dining areas, the main spaces for eating and relaxing on the island, are made from high weather resistant and insulating. The four rooms are created with fire retardant hemp, 3D printed concrete and natural rocks. A series of additional facilities completes the “Earth House” program, including a Japanese-style bath, relaxation and meditation spaces.

A greenhouse made of glass bricks will provide a local source on the island, while the boat house will use seaweed from the local tradition. Complementing the Earth House, the “Wood House” will house a two-bedroom, two-bathroom standalone residence made entirely of wooded islands. The monolithic facade opens towards the coast through an eight-meter triangular window.

Vollebak uses innovative materials and technology to create clothing that is as sustainable and strong as it is beautiful. In other words, the style of the great writer of the Hedonistic philosophy of sustainable architecture. At Vollebak Island, we looked at the chambers as a man-made mound of individual volumes emerging from the land and a separate station at the edge of the breaking waves. Each room in the villa is made of its own unique material: piled seaweed, compacted earth, hemp, glass siding, or locally flowing stone, designed for the specific use and experience of that room. For Vollebak Island, a local tradition elevated by global innovation into an incorporated man-made ecosystem sustaining itself off the coast of Canada. – Bjarke Ingels, Founder and Creative Director of BIG

BIG recently announced a collaboration with ICON, a pioneer in large-scale 3D printing, for an experimental 3D-type hotel in Marfa, Texas. Magnus was also selected as one of five finalists for the design of the new United States Museum. Along with William Rawn Associates and EOA Architects, she was also selected to design the new performance home of the Tennessee Center for the Performing Arts.
