portable cabin by wiercinski studio


 

‘portable cabin’ is a 54 sqm home built in a day

 

camouflaged by its subdued green façades, the ‘portable cabin’ sits discreetly near szelagowski park in poznan, poland. architect adam wiercinski completed the project by joining two shipping containers on-site, creating a surprisingly snug and pleasant dwelling for a pair of artists. the 54 sqm unit was built in just a day and holds a kitchenette, living room, work studio, bedroom, and bathroom.

glazed openings, warm interiors, and industrial façades

 

despite its modest size, the house exudes spaciousness through its fully glazed windows and doors, as well as its roomy terrace surrounded by lush vegetation. to complement that spacious quality, the architect cloaked the interiors with birch plywood — accentuating visual warmth and ensuring proper insulation for wintertime. although wiercinski used soft tones for the interiors, he kept the metallic sheet façades of both containers intact to preserve the industrial aesthetic; this excludes the new coat of green paint adorning the exterior shell.

another great advantage of the residence is hinted in its name. the ‘portable cabin’ is, in fact, portable. ‘the great advantage of this facility is its mobility. in this case, the house isn’t tied to a specific place. if the owners decide to move locations, the home can go with them,’ shares wiercinski.
