MINI Living Urban Cabin explores how future cities may merge public and private, says Sam Jacob

In our latest Dezeen x MINI Living movie, architect Sam Jacob and Corinna Natter of MINI Living explain how micro homes, like the one they presented during London Design Festival, could one day function as shared resources.

The Urban Cabin is a 15-square-metre modular unit, created by MINI Living to explore ways that cities might be occupied in the future.

The brand presented the design for the first time during London Design Festival. Working with London-based architect Sam Jacob, it added a kitchen and a library to the tiny building.

Jacob says that the aim of the project is to explore how to create compact but comfortable shared living spaces as cities become more and more crowded and expensive.

“This project is a very close collaboration between MINI Living and me,” he says in the movie, which Dezeen filmed at London Design Festival.
