Slow Cabins | Unplug from your city life and enjoy the simplicity of nature at a secret location
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.
Slow Cabins | Both for short breaks with loved ones as for inspiring meetings in nature
Slow Cabins offers a hand-picked selection of unique mobile and self-sufficient cabins to be placed at secret locations in nature close to ‘home’. Both couples and families can book a cabin. As well as companies that want to organize inspiring meetings in nature. This is possible through an innovative and multifunctional system enabling a sleeping area to turn into an inspiring meeting room. The cabins can be leased, rented or sold.
Slow Cabins | The design
The eco lodges are manufactured from 100% wood with only qualitative and durable materials. The design is also created with as many locally produced and/or circularly designed innovations, such as smart battery systems, solar panels and dry toilets. Even the interior is decorated with wooden toys from wood waste, lightning from waste materials etc.. Each cabin is fully self-sufficient, with no network connections for water, electricity or sanitary. For Slow Cabins ‘off the grid’ living is no romantic dream, but pure reality. Furthermore the company applies an inclusive business model, re-investing part of its profits into local projects to reinforce the impact of its concept. Slow Cabins is part of the new generation of lean ‘impact driven’ enterprises.
Each model is compact, mobile and modular with attention to light, warmth and simplicity. All lodges have fully-glazed windows to always stay part of the natural environment. Slow Cabins applies a strict circular ‘low impact’ business model, in terms of both product and process design. Already at the design stage it starts by choosing the right materials and techniques in order to minimize waste streams and impact by the cabin and visitor(s) on nature.
Slow Cabins is a start-up from Belgium | But with the intention to expand in Europe
The transportable Slow Cabins are temporarily placed at secret locations in unspoiled nature. These are authentic hidden gem locations within less than a two hours driving distance from major European cities. The start-up has launched its concept in September 2017 to the Belgian market and intends to open new locations and models around Europe in the coming years.
