A system of ropes and pulleys lets owners roll up the walls of this wooden cabin to make the most of the surrounding landscape.

Italian architect Beatrice Bonzanigo designed Casa Ojalá and plans to unveil a scale model of the tiny home at the upcoming Milan Design Week. It measures just 27 sqm but can be reconfigured into 20 different layouts thanks to its sliding walls and fabric partitions, which are reminiscent of a yurt.

Inside, there’s enough space for two bedrooms, a bathroom and a living space – all framed by the cabin’s circular exterior. Owners can go completely off-grid with Casa Ojalá, which Bonzanigo says can be installed anywhere, thanks to its rainwater collection system and solar panels.

A patented prototype of the adaptable dwelling will go on show 9-14 April in Milan – but it remains to be seen whether it will go into mass production.
