The 'Urban Cabin' was designed by London-based architect Sam Jacob as a means of demonstrating the ability for a high-quality structure to exist while using minimal space.
The cabin was designed with a facade that took cues form its surroundings, in order to seamlessly blend in with its environment, appearing as natural and unobtrusive as possible. The interior of the cabin is complete with everything a city-inhabitant could want, including a mini library, a coffee table and a hammock for lounging around. The cabin, which is situated in the courtyard of OXO Tower Wharf, is open to the public and encourages guests to step inside, and explore.
The Urban Cabin was designed for London Design Festival, as a means of exploring the possibilities of compact living.
