Base Cabin

studio edwards as Architects

A mobile retreat providing a fresh design approach to the ‘micro-home’ typology. Designed to be transported on a trailer & wheeled into its desired location. Providing an intimate connection to nature & the great outdoors. The design is inspired by the A-Frame cabin & iconic airstream trailer.

 

The A-frame structurally efficient & using less material than conventional portal framed buildings. Mute in its appearance & clad in black rubber to blend into its surrounds. A cosy sleeping space sits below the A-frame roof with triangular window framing views outwards . The central toilet & shower pod is bathed in light from the roof-light above.

 

A sink and small counter fitted to the rear of the pod provide kitchen functionality with a window ledge adjacent to the large operable glazed facade. Minimal impact to the landscape & easily relocated due to its mobility Using natural materials for the interior creating a warm, inviting & tactile space Provides a cost-efficient alternative to compared to that of building a dwelling Its unique design creates desirability for small space living - promoting the notion of living with less. Increased awareness of sustainability & resources.
