The Soul Box was inspired by the dream of Arcadia, an imaginary idyllic paradise where inhabitants could live unsophisticated yet happy lives immersed in nature. This split-level shelter was prefabricated off-site and then placed in the midst of hundreds of red apple trees. Its ground floor is dedicated to cooking and eating, while the top floor hosts a tiny study. The bed is located at mid-height between these two spaces.

The Soul Box’s front wall unfolds into a deck, while its roof can be opened to provide inhabitants with natural light, fresh air and apples right at hand. The designers created the small retreat for meditation and introspection, and they hope it will help people reconnect with themselves and the environment.

They also placed some wheels under the wooden frame, so the tiny wooden shelter can be transported to one’s own personal Arcadia.
