A6A has packed all essential needs into the 20 sqm residence, which includes a kitchen, a dining/living room, a bathroom, and two beds. created as a spatial experience that connects daily life to the outdoors, the transportable h-eva touches the earth subtly, with as little impact as possible, leaving the land reversible to use after it’s gone. the independent structure is assembled off-site in the workshop, while it’s douglas fir shell is also prefabricate, which allows a better quality of construction. after it’s put together, h-eva can be brought to the desired destination and installed using a crane.
