Home on the move: the portable Lithuanian cabin that you can set up anywhere

9 February 2021

A Lithuanian architecture firm has designed a portable cabin ready to be installed in landscape settings from waterfronts to woodland.

ŠA Atelier teamed up with Vilnius-based steel and furniture company Piritas in a bid to create a transportable holiday home,The result, 019 Cabin, is a 23 sq m steel structure with a modular frame, sheet metal walls, and a folded roof structure that can be installed on uneven terrain, sustains any climate, and causes minimal disruption to the landscape.

The holiday home conceals a kitchen, a bathroom, and two bedrooms, all lined with plywood, creating a warm ambiance that contrasts with the cabin’s cold metal exterior. The two end walls of the cabin are glazed, with one of them opening out to a terrace.

The first prototype was placed near Lake Grabuostas, in a natural park to the north of Vilnius. Now, ŠA Atelier offers the design as a product that can be made to order, constructed in their workshop, transported anywhere, and assembled on-site.
