Indigo Cabin

Architecture firm Woon Pioniers have developed a modular system that allows users to easily create customized modern prefab cabins. The project, dubbed Indigo, can be customised to suit each customer, you can choose between different unit designs and create a smaller or a larger space. The possibilities are almost endless, ranging from compact art studios to weekend retreats, or family homes. In the example below, the custom, 861-square-foot, modular home has fully glazed walls on the front and back, allowing natural light to fill the entire space. A central wooden volume contains the kitchenette, bathroom, and shower, and a set of steps with built-in drawers lead up to a spacious sleeping loft. Only bio materials are used, and their is a focus on energy efficiency, and integrating the structures into landscapes in a natural, unobtrusive way.
