Spjällåda is a modular raised garden bed and bench designed in the context of a competition organised by the chair of Architectural Design and Timber Construction at Technische Universität München (TUM) and the Hans Sauer Stiftung.
The aim of the competition, for which this project received the first prize in the category raised garden bed, was to design a prototype and a set of instructions which would then serve in the Werkraum workshop for refugees to learn new skills and take more active part in the making of their accommodation.
With the 50m total length of wood provided, three modules were realised. Two of them are benches while the third is the raised garden bed and the inserts are interchangeable. Three modules can be set up in four different configurations (S, C, I and L which is pictured below) and the system is easily expandable.
