Prefab houses are getting more and more popularity because they are easy to construct, don’t cost much and look cool and cozy. Such sustainable homes are ideal as simple house extensions, additional home offices or simple country houses that can be built in just a few days. I’d like to share one more cool prefab house, the ARK shelter.

It is a prefabricated cabin is designed as mobile dwelling offering the occupants to escape into nature or any location they please. The rational external envelope –wrapped in dark timber paneling– is complemented with comfortable interiors that feature custom furniture and finished with pinewood. The shelter is designed as an extension of nature, bring architecture back to its basics. Each side of the scheme unfolds and opens up to reveal views of the surrounding landscape. As the modular cabin is built without foundations, it can be easily transportable and can be placed in a diverse range of locations.

The warm and refined interiors come with a lounge space, cozy sleeping accommodation and bathroom facilities – all comprised of natural materials and powered using wind-power. I love the light-colored warm woods inside the house and contrasting black furniture. The wood stove separates the living space from the sleeping area. The dining zone can be extended outdoors, that’s great for a country house. The interior is modern, comfy and simple, in two contrasting shades.

Ultimately, offering luxury camping ‘glamping’ -an increasingly popular choice in activity- or simply as a mobile home, giving the inhabitants a peaceful respite to appreciate nature and the basics. Get inspired and order your own prefab!
