‘California-meets-Copenhagen’ at this Scandi-style cabin, which is design magazine Dwell’s first foray into architecture, created in collaboration with Norm Architects.
The 540 sq ft cabin is sleek, minimal, and would be entirely at home on its website or in the pages of Dwell’s print magazine – which has been celebrating the best design and architecture since its launch in 2000.
Dwell House is manufactured by backyard home specialist Adobu and arrives ready-constructed, with kitchen and bathroom fixtures and fittings in place. There’s a single bedroom tucked away at the end of the cabin, but the main selling point is its 12-foot glass door which folds back, opening the kitchen and living space onto the outdoors.
Dwell has wholeheartedly embraced Scandi minimalism inside and out, with cedar cladding, clean lines, and white walls and cabinets creating a neutral backdrop for owners to work with. William Hanley, Editor-in-chief at the mag, emphasises that the design avoids some of the pitfalls of rival tiny homes, drawing on Dwell and Norm Architects’ experience to finesse every single detail.
That design expertise comes at a premium, however, with a price tag of $389,000 for the cabin.
