The first thing that stands out about the Muutama is the daring architectural style that defines its exterior. Making a visual statement from the off with a swooping, angular roof (which clad in a modish exterior of blackened wood and includes a tastefully antiquated chimney), it can look more like a piece of art than a home—but with this property, that’s not the case.
Inside, buyers will be delighted to find a pull-out bed, a bathroom, and a kitchen spread out within the 269 sq. ft. At a value cost of $341 / sq. ft. it’s no surprise that the construction standards are of the very highest quality. Designed for constant (and energy-efficient) occupancy, the house is as luxurious inside as it is striking from the outside, and looks equally good in the forests of Scandinavia as it does in a metropolitan backyard.
Manufacturers KOTO have clearly designed this mid-sized cabin to be versatile enough to serve a variety of purposes—and owing to the care with which every Muutama has been built, this is a claim they’re able to back up. As well as additional living space, it’s easy to imagine the Muutama working as a detached office or studio area, extra space for a start-up company, or just regular guest accommodation. With the modular home market being such a hotbed for innovation, the Muutama fits right in, and manages to look beautiful without forgetting to do the simple things well.
