An adventurous couple seeking an easily relocatable living and workspace found their wish granted by Polish practice Wiercinski Studio’s delivery of the Portable Cabin: two interconnected shipping containers that addressed their needs and more.
Set in a garden next to a national park in Poznań, Poland, the cabin basks in the anonymity and tranquilness of its surroundings thanks to its olive green painted façades. Placed atop another shipping container used as garden storage, dwellers are offered elevated views of the forest landscape framed by numerous large glazed openings that punctuate the container.
Lined with birch plywood panels, the cabin’s floor plan accommodates a single bedroom and bathroom. The living, dining and kitchen and workspace occupy the south-facing end, culminating in an inviting decked terrace big enough for a couple of chairs and a table. Minimally furnished and easily transportable, Portable Cabin addresses the spatial needs that popped up during the pandemic, that is, “a house that ceases to be a property tied to a specific space, but one that can change its location along with the changes accompanying the life of the owners.”
