There’s a new prefab start-up in town and it’s building Scandinavian style cabins that can be reconfigured for any site.

Koto is the brainchild of husband-and-wife duo Zoë and Johnathon Little, the latter of whom spent a decade working for Norwegian firm Snøhetta. Now based in the UK county of Devon, the couple has designed a range of one to four bedroom cabins which can be tricked out with saunas and an outdoor shower.

The basic Koto prefab home is a wedge-shaped structure with a diagonal roof and is clad in blackened timber. Light is channeled into the dwelling via a floor-to-ceiling glass façade and a skylight set into its sloping roof.

Northern Ireland-based company Kudos manufactures the pods – available to buy, with price on application. They can be reconfigured to add extra space.

Interiors meanwhile have a classic Scandi minimalist aesthetic thanks to white walls, pale wooden floors and cleverly concealed built-in storage
