A Metal Roof Wraps Around This Off-Grid Cabin To Protect It From The Elements

Cameron Anderson Architects has shared photos of a small off-grid cabin they designed as part of a luxury farm stay in Australia.

The building is situated on a gently undulating site with its elevated position offering uninterrupted views of the surrounding farmland.

Charred timber cladding was used as a way of representing traditional burning and regeneration while also assisting in letting the building disappear into the landscape.

The small building has an internal area of just 430 square feet (40m2), incorporates a 6.4kw off grid solar system with 11.4kw of battery storage, and utilizes 100% rainwater for use within the building stored within a 60,000L water tank.

The interior of this small modern cabin is largely open-plan, with a sleeping space within the main living area.
