Some tiny houses expand in size by becoming wider, while others do so by growing outwards or upwards. However, Romania’s Cabini reinvents the Edelweiss by piling tiny houses on top of one another.
The Cabini Edelweiss is structurally composed of a support structure constructed of square metal pipes. This is finished with a fiber cement facade and insulated with a PIR sandwich panel made of Rockwool. It was constructed in two separate units at the company’s headquarters before being shipped to a gorgeous location in Rasca, Romania’s Valea Fericirii.
Its interior appears to be light-filled thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows that has integrated shutters for privacy. It is 36 sq m (387 sq ft) in size and is divided across two floors. The furnishings and finish are of great quality, and Cabini has added a Bang & Olufsen audio system as well as Schueco aluminium fixtures – though, as with most models of this type, the goal is to collaborate with the client to select the materials and appliances they desire.
A nicely spacious living area with chairs and some storage space takes up much of the ground level. A kitchen with plenty of cupboard space, a sink, an oven, and an electric hotplate is nearby. The bathroom, which is built in Neolith stone and comprises a shower, basin, and toilet, is likewise located below.
The upper floor can be reached through a staircase. A bedroom occupies the most of this space and, unlike other compact houses, has plenty of room to stand up straight. It also generously surrounds the vista with windows. Additionally, there is a lovely terrace space outside.
Cabini claims that the Edelweiss’ price would vary according on the options selected (customers might decide to only have a single-floor flat, for instance), but the type shown costs $100,000, including furnishings and appliances. The company claims that shipping to every country in the world is possible and that solar-powered off-the-grid systems are also an option.
