MINI Living builds "global village" of Urban Cabin micro homes | Dezeen



MINI Living Urban Cabins were installed in London, New York, Los Angeles and Beijing over the space of a year. In the latest video from our Dezeen x MINI Living series, we look back at all four.

Each of the MINI Living cabins is a modular 15-square-metre micro home, featuring a bedroom, bathroom, living room and kitchen.

The project aims to showcase ideas for how to maximise living space on a tiny footprint, as well as exploring how architecture can be used to make the most of unused spaces in cities.

“In 1959, MINI reinvented how we move inside cities,” explained architect and MINI Living creative lead Oke Hauser.

“It was an approach based on three main ideas: the creative use of space, iconic design and, of course, a fun experience. With MINI Living we are translating those ideas to reinvent housing and rethink the way we live inside cities,” he told Dezeen.
