Mono Cabin – Minimalist Tiny House Prefab

You can order this tiny prefab cabin for under $22K and place it anywhere you desire. Mono is the culmination of years of engineering and design, with every detail meticulously planned, and every material tirelessly sourced. The little retreat measures nine feet wide, 12 feet high, and 16 feet across, including a four-foot covered deck. These measurements are intentional, as they require no permits in most of North America. The compact structure uses a single-engineered truss frame that makes it capable of withstanding harsh weather, from heavy snow, to downpours, to heat.

Minimalist Wooden Cabin Nolla for Simple Lifestyle

Finnish renewable energy company Neste has created the Nolla cabin, a prototype of a zero emission housing you can erect anywhere – with no traces left behind. The Nolla (zero) cabin, designed by Finnish designer Robin Falck, is located just outside Helsinki city center, on Vallisaari island. The cabin has been built from sustainable materials and is designed for a simple lifestyle with minimal to no emissions, taking into account the surrounding nature in every respect. Inside the cabin, the furnishings have been kept minimal. The energy supply of the cabin is entirely renewable; electricity is generated by solar panels, whilst the Wallas stove, reserved for cooking and heating, runs entirely on Neste MY Renewable Diesel, made 100% from waste and residue.

Northern Wisps Nordic Cabins

Like the Nordic gods that they represent, these cabins by Bartosz Domiczek are just a concept, but they are very beautiful. Still, the Northern Wisps Cabins are one concept we would like to see come to life. Ensconced in the Icelandic Thórsmörk (Valley of Thor), a mountain ridge in Iceland situated between the glaciers Eyjafjallajökull, Mýrdalsjökul and Tindfjallajökull are these luminous, numinous cabins designed by Polish architect Bartosz Domiczek. Domiczek submitted the design as an entry to Ronen Bekerman’s Cabins 3d Challenge. The cabins are huge white monoliths, like the Nordic Frost Giants that Odin extinguished. Their interior is warmly decorated, and comfortable. The cabins stand boldly on the edge of the valley, arranged with the idea of Nordic gods standing in a row on a mountain ridge.

Cozy Concrete and Glass Cabin in Argentina

Hidden in the peaceful forest of the Argentinian shore on a 200 square meters area, every child’s dream finally comes true: a life-size house in the forest. The architect Luciano Kruk stayed true to his “square” style and designed the house on two floors shaping it as a converted container. The result is a unique building that harmoniously combines wood and concrete. In order to meet its client’s needs and to respect the environment, the exterior walls look very rudimentary and even dilapidated from afar, but up close, they suddenly reveal a very contemporary and minimalist style.

Tiny Green Cabin Made from Timber and Scavenged Materials

Invisible Studio built this mobile micro home at its woodland studio near Bath, England, for just £20,000, thanks to the use of salvaged materials and locally grown timber. The UK architecture office built the 40-square-metre gabled structure called Trailer out of unseasoned timber sourced the woodland surrounding its studio, as well as materials saved from construction waste. “The project aims to provide a super low cost, versatile, useable space that could act as a kit of parts for any self builder to improvise around or easily adapt,” said Piers Tayler, architect and founder of Invisible Studio. “While conceived as a domestic space, it could easily function as a workspace or something else.”

Trailer is designed so it can be legally transported on Britain’s roads. A wheeled bogie was used to tow the base of the structure into place, then slid out from under the steel frame and used to transport prefabricated timber frames to the woodland site. At both gable ends interlocking polycarbonate panels allow natural light to fill the space, while window openings are cut into the longer sides and skylights set into the roof. The structure is clad in corrugated fibreglass and steel, and the interior is lined in sheets of pre-used shuttering plywood. The joinery, including the two ladders, are made from plywood offcuts. The corrugated material overhangs at either end, creating a sheltered porch where outdoor shoes can be left.

The corrugated material overhangs at either end, creating a sheltered porch where outdoor shoes can be left. Two ladders give access to two sleeping platforms at either end of the home, one of which is accessed via a wooden walkway suspended over the main space. Great idea!
