The Dutch firm received such positive feedback for the project that it was inspired to launch a series of prefabricated small homes based on the design. They're now ready for market and can serve as an office, vacation home, or full-time dwelling, and operate either on- or off-grid.
2by4 Architects launched the prefabricated line very recently, and the first units are still under construction – so all we have to feast our eyes on right now are some renders. A company rep assured us that the finished cabins will look a lot like the original Recreational Island House they're based upon.
There are three models of small home in all: the smallest, Chalet Aida, comprises a floorspace of 21 sq m (226 sq ft), and features a double-height living room with a large glass facade at the front that slides open. The interior layout differs from the Recreational Island House and includes a small bedroom with double bed, and a loft bed that sleeps two people and is accessible via ladder. In addition to some storage space, there's also a basic kitchen with fridge, sink, and two-burner electric stove, plus a small bathroom area with toilet and shower.
