Dutch architectural designer Caspar Schols has developed ANNA, a small wood cabin with a desire to live closer to nature. Featuring sliding elements or shells, it is a flexible space that can be adapted to the occasion, mood or weather. The inhabitants can easily change the interior setup with movable layers.
Caspar Schols created a similar cabin with sliding walls for his grandmother earlier but this time he has taken the concept to a whole new level. ANNA can be described as a versatile cabin that can be adjusted in different ways according to particular needs.
When wishing to connect with nature, the layers of the cabin can be opened up completely. This will allow you to sleep under the starry sky and enjoy the fresh air. On the other hand, the shells can also be kept closed for privacy or when the weather is not the best outside. One just needs to move the walls for creating the desired living environment.
The ANNA wooden cabin accommodates a living room-cum-bedroom, kitchen, bathroom with a bathtub hidden within the floor. Available in two models, the cabin allows for a deeper connection with inhabitants and the environment. If you want to experience it for real, you can visit Holenberg, a gateway to Nature Reserve De Maashorst in the Netherlands.
