Urban Cabin, by architect Sam Jacob and MINI LIVING, will be one of the Landmark Projects unveiled for the London Design Festival.
The ongoing project by MINI explores the future of urban habitats based on the creative use of space on a small personal footprint, which in a world of streamlined design reflects each city’s unique character. The MINI LIVING team designed a micro-house as a research space for relevant urban needs and local identities. Urban Cabin consists of a clever module reflecting its environment and featuring distinct London characteristics created by architect Sam Jacob. It will be a place to exchange, bringing people together and replicating important elements of urban life: a shared kitchen refers to the importance of food markets, and a micro-library responds to the decreasing number of public libraries.
