Go your own way in this stylish 17sqm cabin

By Alanna Ngo
Looking to escape the big city and get back to nature – sans the uncomfortable tent, mud and flies?
Forget camping (unless that’s your thing), because you’re cordially invited to get off the grid and live large in this tiny, super-stylish cabin.Architecture firm BIG is the brains behind the small-yet-mighty digs, which feature untouched views of the surrounding landscapes and boast a true and private connection to nature.

Imagine coming home to this after a day of exploring the forest? Bliss…

A45, as the home has been named by the firm, is the first prototype constructed for prefab-housing start-up, Klein.

This cabin currently sits in upstate New York within the Hudson Valley, although it’s the company’s hope that interested homemakers will be able to purchase their own A45 tiny home in the near future to sit wherever in the world they please.

The cabin can be customised inside and out and can be tailored to any purpose.

Whether you’re seeking out a new workspace, yoga studio, or off-grid holiday home, the A45 cabin can give you the escape you seek, and in style, too.

The cabins are designed to be built within four to six months.

The unique design of the home has evolved from the traditional A-frame cabin. The pitched roof and angular walls allow for easy run-off and makes what would otherwise feel like a small space appear large and roomy inside.

Though the cabin is only 17sqm in size, it’s actually a towering 3.9m high – one wall features triangular floor-to-ceiling windows that allow bright daylight to illuminate the interiors and warm the space naturally.

“From the exposed timber frame in solid pine, the Douglas Fir floor and customisable space-grade, insulating natural cork walls, A45 brings nature inside,” says the firm.

A quaint kitchen with all the necessities.

During the winter months, an elegant Morsøe wood-burning fireplace can be used to heat the cosy cabin should it sit within colder climates.

There’s also a compact kitchen by danish designer, Københavns Møbelsnedkeri, furniture by Carl Hansen & Son and a Søren Rose Studio bed featuring Kvadrat fabric.

To top it off, the cabin also comes complete with a chic little bathroom made of cedar wood with gold Vola fixtures.

A cedar bathroom makes for a stylish place to unwind.

A45 is constructed on site from mostly recyclable materials and is designed to be built to completion in four to six months – in any location.

BIG says the cabin “reflects a minimal Nordic abode prioritised for ‘hyggelig’ comfort and design”.

Of course, hygge is described as a cosy and heartwarming way to live a life filled with love, happiness, simplicity and laughter.

Count us in.

Get off the grid in style.
