Many people stuck at home around the world due to the coronavirus pandemic are seeking creative solutions for places to work, study, or just relax. Budapest-based Hello Wood design studio’s solution is the minimalist Kabinka cabin that can be assembled by non-experts.
With the popular rise of tiny homes in the last decade, other companies have proposed similar ideas. US smart office company Autonomous is selling a minimalist, 68 square foot office for up to $15,000. Hello Wood itself is working on other tiny cabins that could be used as offices or retreats, like the Workstation cabin, and the expanded Grand Cabin.
The variety of sizes and prices, depending on how many add-ons buyers choose, could make the Kabinka a more realistic and useful solution than some luxury tiny offices on the market. The smallest option starts at $10,200 for just the structure.
Here’s what it looks like.
Options trading The Kabinka cabin comes in four sizes, between 129 and 215 square feet.
Options trading Though floor space is limited, ceilings are over 12 feet tall.
Options trading High ceilings can be used for loft space for storage, decor, or a reading nook.
Options trading Even the small loft space can fit adults, though the Kubinka could also work as a playhouse for children.
Options trading The wooden cabins are minimalist, because Hello Wood was focused on creating an affordable tiny option.
Options trading With such a minimalist design, many interior layout options are possible.
Options trading The main way Hello Wood kept Kubinka affordable was through assembly.
Options trading All the prefabricated pieces are cut out with a CNC machine.
Options trading Then for the most cost effective method, buyers can buy all the parts in a flat pack to assemble themselves.
Options trading The pack comes with all the construction directions a builder would need, and on-site assembly should take between one and three days.
Options trading For buyers who are less confident in their building skills, Hello Wood can add on-site construction for an additional cost.
Options trading Hello Wood says the small cabin should fit a “tea kitchen,” couch, and stove.
Options trading Without much modification, it could work as a low-cost vacation home during the warmer months.
Options trading Other features are available at an additional cost for nearly endless customization possibilities.
Options trading …kitchen furniture…
Options trading …landscaping options, and more.
