Comments Off on Architecture student builds a tiny solar-powered cabin from recycled materials

“Aurora Cabin” is a small forest hideout perfect for those looking for a mini-adventure. Designed and built by a local architecture student, the tiny cozy cabin was created as a contemplative retreat in the aurora forest of Northern Norway. The cabin was crafted from recycled materials supplemented with local timber, and features a solar panel strong enough to power a laptop and lighting. The interior is configurable and can be adapted to facilitate different needs and can be rented for a weekend getaway in AirBnb at just $11 per night. + Aurora Cabin The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
