cabin in wood and grey.

I wrote about Diogene, an experimental, minimalist living unit, here. APH80 is not autonomous (nor is the name poetic…), but it is a similarly small, perfectly formed, portable dwelling designed by architecture firm abaton.

Measuring 9 x 3 metres, it comprises a fully equipped interior with living-room/kitchen, bathroom and double bedroom. The material palette is all pale woods – a selection of FSC-certified spanish fir, local lumber and grey cement wood board cladding the facade. A solid timber skeleton allows large openings to the outdoors. It can be transported by road and placed anywhere.
