Italian architects Paolo Danesi and Massimo Gnocchi revealed their newest project. The Mountain Refuge is a modern take on traditional mountain cabins and brings in architectural character and spatial quality. The 258 square feet tiny home consists of the prefabricated wood modules that allow for freedom of configuration and expansion.
The Mountain Refuge consists of two separate prefab modules made out of plywood for a total of just over 258 square feet. An additional 129-square-foot module can be added at the owner’s choice to expand the interior to 387 square feet. Each plywood module has an independent structure, allowing the owners to create different interior layouts and personalize the space. Furthermore, a helicopter delivery system lets the modules be airlifted to remote locations. They don’t require any foundation work, although Paolo Danesi and Massimo Gnocchi may recommend a thin concrete slab depending on the location.
The Mountain Refuge features massive five-sided floor-to-ceiling windows on its forward and rear sides, capped off by steep 50˚ roofs. The exterior is glazed in black pine tar for waterproofing. Additional equipment such as heating, water and electricity can also be added.
Gnocchi+Danesi Architects claim that construction price for a mounted Mountain Refuge cabin will range from $40,000 to $50,000, depending on the specific plan and the location.
