How beautiful it would be to be able to move the rooms of our house at will. For example, one day you want the room next to the kitchen? Or would you like to create a patio between the bathroom and the living room? No problem, just take a wall and slide the spaces until you like their new position.
Of course, with a flat in a condominium, it is impossible, but Caspar Schols has found an alternative way to make this a reality.
Caspar Schols is an architect originally from the Netherlands who is best known for his ANNA Cabin.
Born under the name Garden House and as a project for his mother, this cabin has attracted the attention of many, spurring Caspar to continue working on it.
ANNA Cabin presents itself as a wooden mini house with a fairly traditional design. What is special about it is that the cabin is conceived as a set of two parts which, once joined together, form a closed, standard structure, but when they are removed, they create an unusual home.
The two shells rest on a wooden base on which they can slide and allow the house to “open”. The empty space formed between these two parts can be used as a patio, leaving it completely open, or it can be closed by an additional shell, this time glazed.
In this way, the usable space doubles and ANNA Cabin becomes a perfect home, where you can stay warm in winter thanks to a stove and an electric heating system and enjoy the coolness in summer, without giving up a breathtaking view.
In fact, ANNA Cabin is designed to be built in places far from the city, resting on a pier, on a meadow, or in a forest, to allow you to reconnect to nature. But being isolated does not mean being without: inside the cabin, there is a kitchen, a bathroom, a sleeping area and a living area, as well as a loft where you can place another bed in case you want to stay in the company of more people.
