Tiny Off Grid Cabin Getaway

Huts in the wild are all the rage right now, and you can see lots of cool huts here and there – by different architects and designs. Here is another cabin, a sustainable and off-grid one.

Sydney-based architecture firm Fresh Prince has designed a compact, off-grid cabin in Australia that offers sustainable accommodation for summer vacations. The 150-square-meter Barrington Tops cabin is located in New South Wales on the banks of a highland river, surrounded by thick forest.

The light wooden construction is based on a wheel chassis and is clad with matt black Weathertex, a material from the region that is made in the production process from forest thinning and other by-products of industry. The off-grid booth has a built-in joinery that blends seamlessly with the interior trim and cathedral, maintaining that feeling of openness. The cabin was designed as a continuous piece of joinery that meshes and aligns to create space for storage, cooking, sleeping and sitting without disrupting the entire space.

Inside, an uncomplicated layout offers a light-flooded interior thanks to several large low-E glass windows with operable slats that offer a natural ventilation system. The minimal interior includes a bed built on smart storage options at one end of the cabin. At the other end is a bathroom separated by a compact kitchen with a small refrigerator and a two-burner gas stove.

The cabin is designed in such a way that it has as little physical and ecological impact as possible. It contains solar energy, which creates all the necessary energy. It also features a composting toilet, reconstituted sawdust and wax siding, and exposed copper and brass plumbing.
