With the explosive popularity of manufactured tiny homes over the past year, it’s no surprise to see another architecture firm take on a similar project. The A45 cabin in upstate New York is yet another inspiring take on the genre, with Denmark’s Bjark Ingels Group (BIG) leading the ambitious build.
The A45 cabin is an A-Frame inspired tiny home built with customization in mind. Conceptualized as a fully tailored space that can be purchased, erected, and placed within four to six months, the home boasts a minimalistic design that allows for a variety of different applications and uses. In an odd “twist” of events, BIG decided to expand the space by conforming the roof to a 45-degree angle, which allows for an almost 13-foot high ceiling — perfect for making the home feel much larger than it really is. At only 180 square feet, the dark pine timber structure utilizes a Douglas Fir floor with space-grade customizable insulating cork for the walls. A Morsoe wood burning fireplace sits quietly in the corner of the home while a small kitchen area, a variety of handcrafted furniture pieces, and a cedar adorned bathroom help to round out the cozy abode.
