‘lushna villas’ is a project comprised of micro-cabins, developed by the slovenia-based firm lushna that takes simplicity to its maximum expression. the smart-sized huts are reduced to those elements essential for a first row experience of nature contemplation, without compromising comfort. scaled to the human body, the units merge functionality with ecological materials. the tiny triangle rooms almost disappear in its context, being the first step to conquer the most beautiful natural environments.

the distinctive full wall glass opening welcomes natural light and makes the space feel unlimited. the interior stays flexible with movable beds and shades for intimacy. the villas are constructed with durable massive larch or pine wood that will age nicely, giving that changeable appearance over time that blends with nature. when designing the scheme, ‘lushna villas’ were located to offer the best possible experience of their location. its off-site manufacture and concrete-free foundations make transport and installation fast and efficient.
