A team of Berlin-based designers have created a building prototype that makes hunting for apartments a thing of the past. Solar-powered, prefabricated Cabin Spacey homes can be installed almost everywhere-in backyards, on rooftops or infill lots- a perfect living arrangement for modern urban nomads. The designers are currently raising funds through Indiegogo to realize their Cabin Spacey Model Zero and allow selected backers to spend a night in the prototype.
The project aims to utilize Berlin‘s rooftops as an untapped spatial resource where Cabin Spacey homes can thrive. Crafted from sustainable materials and completely modular, the house is both environmentally friendly and flexible, offering a few different configurations including the standard model with two rooms, a kitchen and a bath.
CABIN SPACEY Model Zero – supported by Thoma Holz100, Green Living, and the Berlin-Mitte Housing Society, is the first model to be constructed. Its creators, Simon and Andreas, along with their extended team, hope the project will appeal to urban nomads, and anyone fed up with the restrictions imposed by traditional living.
