Cocobello Modular Cabin With Various Purposes

advertise here

Building a new house in the old fashioned way, doesn’t allow change and takes not only a lot of time but a lot of personal effort. Not the Cocobello modular cabin which is built using three interlocking elements that can be moved horizontally and vertically, to form a two-storey studio unit. Designed as a Fliegender Bau (“flying building”), flexible and extremely functional, it was built as a temporary structure that would allow to live up to 5 years. I can really see it as an office, showroom, artist’s studio, some sort of a mobile workshop or maybe a temporary booth at a trade fair ?

The Cocobello modular cabin was designed by Peter Haimer Architektur and measures 3 x 6 x 3.5m, but once deployed it occupies a volume of 5.8 x 6.4 x 6m. The color and the ease to move it around are a plus, but the fact that you have to pay 75,000 Euro for it (pretty expensive) draws it back. Love the colors, though. Cabin specs (pdf link)

    That is awesome. Really great use of space. How do you handle building inspections?

    Thanks,
