The Piha and Yksi models are the newest additions to Koto Design’s lineup of prefab houses – and they come with some distinctly Nordic touches.
Designed for Plant Prefabs, the cabins emphasise the connection with the outdoors, with huge windows designed to frame the views. Charred timber panelling covers both models, while the interiors are lined with pale wood.
The cantilever Yksi cabin (starting from $419,000) is the smaller of the two, with a ‘stacked’ intersecting structure that contains two bedrooms spread across 1,000 sq ft. Piha – which starts from $612,000 – resembles a more traditional home and comes with four bedrooms and a pair of courtyards, which give the cabin its Finnish name.
As with all of Koto’s designs, the emphasis is on natural materials and a low carbon footprint.
