As working from home increasingly becomes the new norm, more and more architecture and design firms are reimagining what the future office landscape will look like as communal workspaces become rarer and rarer. British outfit, Koto Design envisions a world in which backyard or on-site offices have become the status quo, and in preparation for this perceived shift, Koto has unveiled an affordable, prefab design known as the “Work Space Cabin.”
Koto’s first project done in collaboration with England’s New Art Centre, the Work Space Cabin boasts an incredibly unique geometric shape, reminiscent of a modified cube that’s been dropped on its side – reportedly a nod to NAC’s sculptural program. The structure’s only window is a large angled pentagonal piece that provides more than enough natural light and heavily contributes to the design’s idiosyncratic character. Made from all-natural materials and entire carbon neutral, the cabin is adorned in charred timber cladding that’s produced through the traditional Japanese technique known as Shou Sugi Ban. The Work Space cabin can be shipped on-site, and is available now starting at $32,850+.
