Makkink & Bey’s Buijtenbed is a tiny pop-up holiday home that brings guests closer to nature. It was inspired by the caravans that many Dutch use to go on camping trips in the summer. The tiny wheeled shelter is outfitted with retractable wooden stairs, encased in a box, and it can be transported by a standard farm trailer.

Buijtenbed was created as part of Ester van de Wiel and Marnix Tavenier‘s Werkplaats Buijtenland project, which also includes a kitchen unit for making hand-made apple juice or cider and a research station for seasonal harvesting.
