Located in Northern Sweden, here’s an experimental micro cabins called North / South. These two cabins same the same traits, materiality, colors, and content, yet each cabin features different personalities.
The North cabin is hostile and wild, it sits toward the open plain with its quills combed by strong winds, it creates a defiant and aggressive stance. The South cabin features more friendly characters, it is tamed by the weather and its surrounding. It looks peaceful while levitating above the ground with its quills disappearing toward it.
The quills have become essential element of North / South cabins, they speak the same language yet very different tones. Made of black painted timber sticks, these quills are installed in several layers, horizontally or vertically on a steel structure designed specifically to support them. Through layering process, these timber sticks are covered by thick coat around its core, thus, creating an extra layer of insulation as well as a unique cladding.
Designed by Predrag Vujanovic, both cabins have the same prefabricated main structure, it is delivered in one piece to the site. The exterior walls are insulated and cladded in steel sheet. Each cabin is designed for two people with entrance storage, bathroom, and kitchen/dining/office area. Everything is kept at a bare minimum with majority furniture concealed in cabinets or inbuilt in the walls just like the tables. The purpose of these cabins is to provide its guests with peaceful and silent place, whether it’s for work, focus, or meditation while connecting to the nature that surrounds it.
