Minimod Shelters

Bigger isn't always better, especially when it's impeccably designed. Minimod Shelters uses this philosophy to make up for its tiny stature. At just 290 square feet, these prefabricated pods are made with steel frames and recycled wood and include a bedroom, bathroom, living and dining room. Whether it be a guest house, studio, or weekend retreat. each model is completely customizable and combinable to meet your needs. Although it's not required, a stellar location is recommended to take advantage of the structure's large glass openings.

  • H2 Cape House

    Located on the French Island of Corsica, the H2 Cape House uses a low profile and natural materials to blend into its Mediterranean setting. A green roof paired with slats of red cedar cladding infuse with the coast's lush vegetation, also allowing sunlight to filter through the home's central terrace. The expansive single-story design makes way for a number or outdoor areas — including two swimming pools — to enjoy the seaside surroundings, while extensive internal glazing maximize views for the interior. A private beach outlines the exterior, along with a small port for ocean access to the property.

  • Dorman House

    Instead of demolishing the existing beach shack, the Dorman House adds a vertical extension to create undisrupted views of the ocean. The original home remains mostly untouched, with the exception of a new bathroom and laundry in the former kitchen. A spiral staircase leads to the new addition above, housing a kitchen, dining and living room. Internally, the timber box structure is completely lined with Silvertop Ash that not only adds coastal character, but also responds to the area's seasonal changes and time of the day. North-facing full height windows break up the timber planks to brighten the space, while framing in views of the Victoria coast.
