This 21 Sqm Prefabricated Cabin A24 By DDAA Comes With All Modern Amenities

If we talk about the one architectural trend that is booming like anything- it’s small homes! And what’s even better than them are the tiny cabins sitting amidst the woods. They are beautiful, relaxing, and a haven for anyone who wants to get away from the chaotic city life. On the same line, a very young and dynamic studio DDAA (Dev Desai Architects and Associates) - led by Dev Desai designed a sleek, prefabricated tiny cabin-Cabin A24- that comes with all the modern amenities. Measuring 21sqm, the cabin features large, open windows that offer panoramic views of the natural beauty outside. SURFACES REPORTER (SR) gathered more information about this mesmerizing and surreal tiny cabin from the architect.

Challenging Traditional Construction Systems

According to the architect, their clients Sunny Watwani and Adithya Roongta of CabinA expressed their desire to challenge conventional design and construction systems.

Their vision to build contemporary forms amidst nature with the least ecological footprint led them onto a year-long process of designing and curating spatial experiences, meticulous detailing, and engineering for prefabrication and assembly. 

Large, Open Facades For Unobstructed Views

While the initial concept for A24 was designed by Spasm, DDAA worked to develop the design and prefabricate it in record time.

The cabin’s most prominent features are its large, open facades that frame gorgeous views of the natural beauty outside. 

A Touch of Elegant Simplicity

The 225 sq. ft interior space reflects a minimal abode prioritized for comfort and design.

One of the initial projects under DDAA was the design development of a Tiny Cabin on a coffee estate as an alternative way of living during the Pandemic. His formative development as an architect was under the guidance of Pritzker Laureate Toyo Ito and associates, Japan and Vo Trong Nghia Architects, Vietnam. Both continue to have a strong influence on his work. The connection with nature and the desire to push the boundaries of architecture and construction are the guiding principles behind his work.
