The team designed the tiny home as a space where smooth transitions between walls and roof create a flowing space that looks and feels organic. Traditional structural elements, typical of the mobile huts used in the 19th and 20th century by shepherds, were combined to provide optimal insulation and protection from the elements. The hut’s sturdy exterior uses moisture resistant layers and hard-wearing woodwork that can be customized in different colors.

There are two types of roof cladding to chose from – western red cedar and galvanized steel – both of which guarantee optimal performance and ability to regulate indoor temperatures throughout the year. Interior cladding also comes in two variations, as solid wood paneling and hardwood veneered plywood which include birch, maple, oak, walnut, ash and other specialty woods. The windows are made of thermal pane glass set into solid cedar frames and sashes hand-picked, machined and handcrafted by the team.
