Read-Nest is a pre-fabricated structure, so no noise, scrap materials, wood dust or builders are necessary to build it. The tiny wooden box could land in any garden, forest or even an urban terrace, causing very little damage to the environment. Read-Nest is completely made from local and sustainable birch.

Vertical wooden boards were used on the outside and the interiors, including the square shelves and the foldable bed and table were built from the same species of plywood. Its design not only makes it flexible for transportation, its internal features could also be adapted to the owner’s needs and personal tastes while optimizing space.
