Whether you’re craving a memorable vacation or simply yearning to go off grid for a bit, the Birdbox adventure cabin can do the trick. Designed by the Norwegian company Livit, these prefabricated structures are built to be easily transported and environmentally friendly.
"We wanted to create a product that could enable unique experiences with a minimal footprint," explains Torstein Aa, the designer of Birdbox and co-founder of Livit. "Built in composites to withstand any environment with no need for maintenance, Birdbox can be lifted in place with a helicopter and mounted on columns to ensure a reversible impact on nature."
So far, the company has perched two Birdbox vacation rentals in remote corners of Norway, and it aspires to expand its reach in the future. "We plan to place the Birdbox cabins in locations across the country so people can get a new experience with every place they visit," states Livit CEO Asbjørn Reksten Stigedal.
In addition to renting the sleek cabins out as vacation getaways, Livit also offers them for sale. Currently, the prefabs come in two versions: the Mini, which is roughly 76 square feet, and the Medi, which is 131 square feet. The tiny dwellings can be outfitted with solar panels and bathrooms that feature one-way tinted glass. Both versions are offered turnkey with minimalist interiors that are heavily insulated to combat harsh weather conditions.
