Slow Cabins helps city dwellers recharging their batteries while staying in a stand-alone self-sufficient ‘silence hut’ to disconnect and rediscover the simplicity of unspoiled nature nearby ‘home’ (less than two hours’ drive from cities). With this off the grid concept the company wants to reshape the future of housing and hospitality in line with the latest societal and environmental challenges by:

• developing smaller, better and healthier mobile eco houses that are affordable and last longer.
• choosing qualitative (natural) materials, combined with clean ‘minimal impact’ technologies.
• integrating smart multifunctional designs, offering simple but high performances. lees verder
