environmental-friendly tiny houses on wheels

 

norwegian brand norske mikrohus — founded by the couple jeanette and david reiss-andersen — specializes in sustainable tiny houses on wheels that can be easily relocated. recently the designers unveiled a new model from the series, a 16sqm black wood-clad cabin dubbed rast, that can accommodate the whole family for short-term stays. the entire unit is lightweight enough to be moved with a vehicle, by simply connecting it to the metal support under the dwelling. tiny movable house on wheels reflects the minimalist nordic styleall images courtesy of norske mikrohus

 

 

withstand the harsh weather conditions

 

the entire cabin is designed to endure the harsh weather conditions in norway, leaving a minimal footprint; a black aluminum water-resistant roof tops the wooden structure and protects it from heavy snow, a double glass door shields from the sharp wind. furthermore, the designers installed laminated two-layer insulated windows that allow natural light to penetrate the interior while providing the inhabitants with sweeping views of the scenery; ‘mountains in winter, sea in summer, or salmon river in autumn.’

16 sqm cabin blends into its environment 

 

‘rast’ is the smallest model — about 16 sqm — of the collection, while its simple timber interior reflects the minimalistic nordic style. the entire inside is wrapped in built-in furniture that creates a functional and cozy environment. a lofting bed is nestled under the gable roof, while the living room daybed turns to a bed when necessary. the open-plan kitchen is outfitted with a compact dishwasher, and the bathroom includes a shower niche and a large rectangular window. moreover, a small table unfolds from the bottom of the lower bunk bed, offering a compact dining area. storage shelves can be found all over the interior integrated into the furniture, making the most of the space.

project info:

 

name: rast

firm: norske mikrohus

designers: david and jeanette reiss-andersen

price from: around 89.000 euros

  • For anyone keen to buy, the cost of a ‘RAST’ starts at 890000 Norwegian Krone, not Euros. Still expensive – this converts to around £75k – but not quite as stratospheric at 890000 Euros would be! If the company wishes, I would be very happy to take one on trial to review.
