Dutch designer Caspar Schols designed this unusual ANNA Stay cabin which is a moveable wooden structure that opens it up to the elements. The unique design allows the occupant to live with nature instead of blocking it out.
The outer walls are made up of two ‘shells’ on rails with the inner consisting of a wood and glass frame, while the exterior wall is a metal roofed structure. The shells can be adjusted to create various setups depending on the weather or your mood. By shifting the shells, different setups are possible to align with your mood, the occasion or weather conditions. Just like the way you change your clothes. Just imagine sleeping in an actual bed under the stars!
ANNA Stay can be a full-time residence or a holiday retreat as it’s outfitted with all the necessities one might need: a bathroom with shower and flush toilet, fully furnished kitchen, storage, and space for up to two king size beds. A heating system can be installed if needed.
