Scandinavian design is well known for its simple aesthetics and minimalism, and this cabin located in the Jutland area of Denmark is a prime example of that. It is small, with a footprint of just 258 square feet (24 sq m) yet it looks and feels very cozy. Personally, I think it could easily be a full time tiny home, and not just a vacation house.

The cabin was designed and constructed by architect Simon Steffensen and measures 19.8 ft by 11 ft. The owners use it as a summer home, and Simon built it as an experiment in simple living, as well as to demonstrate to others that living tiny can actually be a good thing.

The cabin features one glazed wall, which lets a lot of natural light into the interior. The home is based on an open plan design and everything is located within the single space, save for the bathroom, which is separated off from the main living area. The cabin has oak flooring, and the rear wall is also paneled with this same material. This gives the cabin a very warm feel, which is the staple of Scandinavian architecture. Some of the wood used in this area was reclaimed, while they also used some other recycled materials such as the bathroom door, which used to be a cold room door.


At one end of the home are the kitchen, bathroom and bed. The kitchen is small, but looks functional. The main bedroom is located in a loft, which is accessible via an interesting contraption that looks like a cross between a ladder and a set of stairs. The home features a gabled roof, but there seems to still be enough headroom in the loft despite this.




The other end of the home is taken up by a sofa that can be used as a guest bed, and a dining area that is also intended for use as a workspace. Outside, the house also features a large overhang which offers shade, and creates an outdoor terrace.


The cabin is on sale for $74,000 by the firm Solbjerg Builders.
