A Micro Cabin for Macro Vacations

View all 16 Photos

Bulgarian designer Hristina Hristova has created a structure with a unique market niche. The Koleliba (Bulgarian for “hut on wheels”) appeals to the micro house trend many like in theory but could never practically accept, while also offering a more affordable option for people interested in owning a vacation home. The Koleliba takes advantage of the tranquility of cabin life by shrinking it down to a size that is both transportable and affordable. Living in small quarters can be a liberating experience, forcing one to forgo all possessions that aren’t essential to feel comfortable in the space, but it can be hard to live this way throughout the year, especially if your not into the whole ascetic thing. And while beach houses and weekend rentals can be a nice getaway from the working life, the cost can balloon rather quickly. Hristova’s design solves both these dilemmas, and its mobility ensures that the owner can take it to any destination they desire. At only 97 square feet, the cabin seems too small to handle its load. But when it’s time to unwind after a long day, the 8-foot ceilings, modular furniture and broad glass door confirm that it is more than up to the challenge. It even comes with a retractable awning to provide a pleasant space for quiet meals in the great outdoors. The project was a DIY attempt by Hristova to solve the problems of affording a vacation home, and hopefully will find its way into production soon.
