How would you describe Monocabin in a nutshell?
Monocabin is like a design object. It’s a small space but designed with attention to detail so that everything inside the house is perfectly organised. We were inspired to create a micro-home that you could place anywhere in the world, without requiring a lot of space and with the ability to stand alone. It was designed to realise this idea and create a cultural impact while at the same time being environmentally friendly. Located on the beautiful island of Rhodes, Monocabin exudes an atmosphere of relaxation, with minimalistic use of colours and materials to make it feel like home. It allows you to easily transition between the inside and outside worlds, with exterior views when you’re sleeping, cooking or taking your bath.
How would you describe the architecture and design?
We wanted to create an interface between the interior and exterior of the home by designing large windows at the top that make you feel like you are outside while still being protected from the elements. Through these windows, you can see the sky, the moon and the trees, which makes you feel totally connected to the outside world.
We are not architects but designers, so we also wanted to create a house that is easy to construct. Monocabin was built in three months and could easily be replicated by others in the future.
