According to Belatchew Arkitekter’s CEO Rahel Belatchew Lerdell, Steps ‘is a small house with large spaces.’ Designed entirely from high-quality Siberian larch, this home was designed to make the most out of the great outdoors. It consists of a single white-painted room inside, with a planted staircase on the outside that leads to a roof terrace where inhabitants can enjoy the sun, breeze and views.

Both the stairs and the terrace are kids-friendly and equipped with a galvanized, powder-coated iron railing. Featuring plenty of storage hidden inside its shell, it can be made into a modern guesthouse, hobby room or garden shed. Its pop-up outdoor kitchen has a sink prepared for water and there is also plenty of hidden storage spaces for gardening and household items.
