Welcome to our weekend property digest, where we bring together the best houses for sale (or rent) that we’ve unearthed across the world. Among this week’s discoveries is a customisable cabin by Faye Toogood and an art collector’s Stockholm pad.
Duality Cube Haus by Faye Toogood, UK
2-3 bedrooms; from £400,000 via The Modern House (coming soon)
London property start-up Cube Haus has commissioned a stellar-line up of talent to craft its new range of infill prefabs, including David Adjaye and designer Faye Toogood. The latter’s cabin-like design features a gabled roof and timber interiors. ‘Duality’ can be adapted to fit an awkward, tiny or unorthodox urban plot and can be bought off the peg or with an existing Cube Haus plot.

Tiny cabin in Queenstown, New Zealand

Tom’s Cabin was voted New Zealand’s best home in 2016, and the cabin is nestled among running and bike trails around Kawarau Falls, near Queenstown.
