By addressing the global dichotomy between a rapidly-expanding population and the size of a typical Western home (which itself gets larger every year), the KODA Loft can be squeezed into unoccupied urban spaces, tackling the growing questions of sustainability and organised living with daring elegance and style.
As a movable timber frame house, the Light maintains the award-winning architecture of the original wooden home while innovating with creative use of building materials and techniques. Units can be stacked on top of one another, further aiding the fight for a sustainable future, while the Nordic minimalism extends to the interior, which offers a fully equipped kitchen, plenty of storage, and a stunning full-length window that occupies the entire back wall.
An outside ladder on the back wall functions as drainage for rainwater as well as a growing shelf suitable for herbs or flowers. Inside, the owner can customize many of the design elements in order to create the perfect home for them, while the essential floorplan of simple, clean, and straightforward living remains the same throughout every permutation, promising the kind of consistency we need to progress towards a more sustainable future.
