“Shelter byGG” project is a living space and a sculptural object that can be placed in public space. Pretty cool idea actually, the idea was based on the author’s working theme which is transforming sculptural objects into design objects, turning them into products that can be used every day. Gabriela Gomes, the person behind this project, proposes the concept of an habitable module, she invites you to get some rest inside a sculpture installed on a public place.
Inside Shelter byGG, guest will be able to enjoy one double room with integrated WC, assuring the comfort and privacy of the user. Don’t worry, the aesthetic part is not forgotten, in fact, it’s the strongest aspects of the project.
Designer : Gabriela Gomes and Sérgio Bessa
