A Cozy Modern Cabin That Opens to the Elements

After building a summer house for his mother, a Dutch designer Caspar Schols has evolved the design to accommodate the ANNA stay cabin. It’s not your average cabin, however, as it has a moveable wooden structure that opens it up to the elements. The unique design allows the resident to live with nature instead of blocking it.

The outer walls consist of two “shells” on rails, with the inner wall made of a wooden and glass frame, while the outer wall is a metal roof structure. The trays can be customized to create different setups depending on the weather or your mood. Imagine sleeping in a real bed under the stars!

Cabin ANNA is a flat pack design that comes in two models: ANNA Stay and ANNA Meet, a flexible cabin for meetings, yoga, educational purposes and more. ANNA Stay can be a full-time residence or a holiday retreat as it is equipped with everything you need: a bathroom with shower and toilet, fully equipped kitchen, storage space and space for up to two king-size beds. If necessary, a heater can be installed.

The original ANNA Stay cabin opened in March 2021 in Holenberg, the Netherlands and is available for rent. If you want to buy your own they can currently be bought and delivered in Europe. The cabins will then be available in North America in the first half of 2022 and beyond in late 2022.
