Less is more, even when we’re on vacation. Monocabin is a little house for two, located on the island of Rhodes in Greece designed by Milan-based studio Mandalaki.
A miniature and minimalist house conceived around exploring the intimate space of the individual in order to create the perfect summer getaway. Monocabin explores the desire to juxtapose the sleek, streamline design of a modern structure with the organic environment of the surrounding nature into a liveable design object.
The crafting is conceived around concrete panels with a degree of modularity which makes this house not only easy to install but extendable to any desires. Accentuating the sensation of living in nature by blurring indoor and outdoor space in a unique way, to experience falling asleep with the night light, and waking up with the blue sky to focus on what is important—nature.
Monocabin incorporates the surrounding trees to help cool down the environment of this summer getaway making vegetation a simple and effective way to provide shaded areas. A sustainable beauty to improve the quality of life during peak island weather.
