Interior with reading area and sleeping loft. Furnishings include desk, chair, mattress, bedding. Sliding doors provide ventilation. Day lighting is provided by windows, and clearstory glazing. Overhangs provide for solar shading. A roof deck has outdoor seating and umbrella. #Design_It_Shelter_Competition
