The Urban Contemporary Cabin

The SkySpace cabin is a contemporary and unique concept design, created to excite and inspire. The cabin was conceived to be located in an urban environment where privacy is in high demand. SkySpace epitomises the thinking at Life Space Cabins. We want each of our cabins to have a sense of play for all users of the space. SkySpace delivers this through several ways. The entire rear wall is shelving, which doubles as steps to access the sleep platform (which doubles as a sun screen). The sleep deck slides to and fro across the cabin ceiling.

This Life Space Cabin concept only has one window! But the one window is the entire roof, framing the sky and inviting so much natural light into the cabin.

The sky is the limit with this cabin. Be it a unique home office or music room.

 

Planning

Designed to fit within the domestic curtilage permitted development criteria. This design would suit an urban location where a sense of space needed. By using permitted development we are free to explore different materials and concept. Skyspace reflects the sky into the property framing a skyscape in your town or city back garden. If the form is below 4m and can be located at least 2m from a boundary and in a standard permitted development area then we can build this for you.

Build

Skyspace could be constructed in several ways dependent on budget and your preferences. We had imagined a contemporary take on the craft of a traditional timber frame structure to create depth and interest to the vaulted space. Alternatively, we could construct the form using a timber stud system or CLT sheet timber. Both could be suited to the prefabricated route we prefer.

Cost

Prices from £30,000+VAT exclusive of planning and building regulation fees, service connections, foundations, delivery installation. Subject to access and client specification.

We would be happy to discuss your specification and requirements and price this for your location. (Site Visit fee may be applicable)

Materials 

The front wall is clad in mirror sheet which reflects and frames a picture of the sky when viewed from the rear of the main house. Imagine watching sky scroll by as you enjoy a coffee or supper. This front wall then transforms the cabin space from an intimate and private space into a very social and connected space.

 

We specify fittings and fixtures from leading brands that we work with such as Rationel windows, Clearview stoves and Lindab guttering. We can tweak the specification as required though the cost may vary. Grains, textures and colours may vary from those shown.

Customisation

We recognise that by adapting the design and introducing you to further options it will give you the flexibility to tailor the aesthetics and functionality of the space and ensure its specific to your project. Imagine this form clad in natural timber or a considered colour clad system like TRESPA. Call us to explore your ideas 01364 705057

Simple design amendments can often be undertaken for a small charge, although changes that affect the structure, will result in re-engineering and remodelling the design will have a larger impact on the final design and build costs.

Life Space Cabins Service 

We specialise in the design and build of amazing smaller spaces. We like to take responsibility and have fun with each of our projects. Each project will come with a varying need for project management, we can take care of the whole project or agree on a suitable package of works for your budget.

As standard Life Space Cabins will offer guidance on helping you choose the right cabin for your site, plus light-touch guidance on planning permission.

We can come to your site and give an appraisal which can cover market demand (rental), access, site location, service infrastructure, engineering and independent planning advice (from one of our expert consultants).

We will always make you aware if your project costs are likely to extend beyond the standard.
