The Kebony Boat House by TreStykker Students is a compact coastal structure designed with sustainability in mind. The pop-up architecture piece has been built in the central harborfront in Oslo, Norway.

The wood-clad building is not only a functional boat house, but also serves as a functional venue for small theatrical performances and musical concerts. Named for its eco-friendly material, the Kebony Boat House is built from an alternative to tropical hardwood. The sustainable material is free from toxins and is durable and resistant to decay.

Oslo School of Architecture and Design and Bergen School of Architecture and NTNU in Trondheim teamed up for TreStykker, an independent workshop that aims to teach individuals about the importance of ecologically responsible architecture practices.
