Modular Prefab Cabin With a Stylish Black Exterior

Guided by the desire to connect people with nature and to offer them a new type of small buildings which can allow them to embrace outdoor living without having to solely rely on customized projects which are developed over long period of time, studio Koto Design has come up with the idea of an off the shelf prefab cabin.

This housing solution is inspired by the Nordic concept of Friluftsliv  which roughly translates as open-air living. The studio offers a series of cabin-like modules designed to offer a variety of functions and capable of being used as single standalone units or as modules in a more complex setting. Design-wise they’re sculptural and modern interpretations of traditional mountain retreats.
