The University of Colorado, Denver, together with the international non-commercial organization called Outward Bound has implemented the project of an unusual dwelling. This is a dormitory which is located on the steep hill in the pine forest and is represented by several small houses, constructed over a period of only three weeks.

They are the combination of two elements: the main part and the outer frame. Thus, the frame is used for protection against bad weather, is also a terrace and provides opportunity to store bicycles, skies and kayaks. The living part of the house is made in a form of studio. The internal finishing is made of the birch plywood and functional elements are represented by the transformer bed, the wardrobe and the working place for each student.
