SMALL URBAN HOUSING: The MINI LIVING URBAN CABIN.
INTRODUCING THE FIRST URBAN CABIN AT LONDON DESIGN FESTIVAL.
The Urban Cabin’s purpose is to create a house with limited space that is inspired by local surroundings; a cabin that blends into the landscape and illustrates London as a vibrant city that incorporates cultural influences from around the world. It mixes old and historical buildings and cultural sites with modern structures and innovation. This cabin’s surface on the outside is made from materials and patterns that reflect the surrounding buildings. The micro-library on the inside stands as a symbol for the historical richness of London while parts of the interior are modern elements. “With the concept we wanted to visualise London’s cultural differences and traditions, but also modern habits that are very typical for the city”, says Corinna Natter, Designer MINI LIVING.
In a more and more generic designed world, we trust in turning spaces into places.
The cabin’s interior design is based on very specific and cultural needs.
