Small space, big heart
A miniature house designed down to the very last detail in Rhodes, Greece. Monocabin was conceived around exploring the intimate space of the individual in order to create the perfect summer getaway by Mandalaki studio.
A livable design object
Monocabin explores the desire to juxtapose the sleek, streamline design of a modern structure with the organic environment of the surrounding nature into a livable design object.
The crafting is conceived around concrete panels with a degree of modularity which makes this house not only easy to install but extendable to any desires.
« The dream was to build a livable and modular design object we could place anywhere in the world sharing our design philosophy. The story had to begin in Greece.»
Each piece of furniture is conceived « made to measure » to make the space a better place to be lived in. Nothing garish, just a proposal with the perspective for our host to return to oneself.
A view of the skylight
Accentuating the sensation of living in nature by blurring indoor and outdoor space in a unique way to experience falling a sleep with the night light and waking up with the blue sky to focus on what is important – nature. Blinds will ensure you are always in control with the surroundings.
In the open air
Design spaces and objects around the garden will make our host appreciate even more their outdoor experience. Functionality and simplicity have been crafted around each corner of the house.
Monocabin incorporates the surrounding trees to help cool down the environment of this summer getaway making vegetation a simple and effective way to provide shaded areas. A sustainable beauty to improve the quality of life during peak island weather.
The idea was born out of a need to create a shelter for a return to oneself juxtaposing sharing and collaboration at its heart. A getaway which celebrates an ideal dimension of space imagined to be placed in several points of the world.
