News Story Summary:
Recently the designers unveiled a new model from the series, a 16sqm black wood-clad cabin dubbed 'Rast', that can accommodate the whole family for short-term stays.
The entire unit is lightweight enough to be moved with a vehicle, by simply connecting it to the metal support under the dwelling.
Withstanding the harshest weather conditions:
the entire cabin is designed to endure the harsh weather conditions found in Norway, whilst leaving a minimal footprint.
A black aluminium water-resistant roof tops the wooden structure and protects it from heavy snow, a double glass door shields from the sharp wind.
Furthermore, the designers installed laminated two-layer insulated windows that allow natural light to penetrate the interior while providing the inhabitants with sweeping views of the scenery; ‘Mountains in winter, sea in summer, or Salmon river in autumn.’
16m2 Cabin blends with its environment:
‘Rast’ is the company's smallest model (About 16 sqm) & while its simple timber interior reflects the minimalistic Nordic style, the entire inside is wrapped in built-in furniture that creates a functional and cozy environment.
A lofting bed is nestled under the gable roof, while the living room sofa converts into a bed when necessary.
The open-plan kitchen is outfitted with a compact dishwasher, and the bathroom includes a shower niche and a large rectangular window.
Moreover, a small table unfolds from the bottom of the lower bunk bed, offering a compact dining area.
Storage shelves can be found all over the interior integrated into the furniture, making the most of the space.
