The prefabricated tiny home is complete with a sloped roof and a floor-to-ceiling window that naturally bridges the indoors with the outdoors.

The cabin was designed by two Italian architects, Massimo Gnocchi and Paolo Danesi, who were inspired by traditional mountain shelters in the Alps. Together, they built a startup — named after the cabin design, The Mountain Refuge — to bring their idea to the market. 

"Refuge aims to find balance between sustainability and design," Gnocchi said in an email to Insider.  

Although the cabin's design complements a mountain landscape, its open layout makes for amazing views no matter the terrain  — which is fitting because the goal of Gnocchi and Danesi's startup is to make the prefab home available to buyers around the world.

The architects designed The Mountain Refuge to have an open layout where the kitchen naturally connects to the living room and bedroom. The original cabin design is about 269 square feet, but buyers can choose to have the cabin built with an additional module that will increase the home's size to around 400 square feet.

Gnocchi also said that the cabin design includes several sustainable features, such as a sloped roof that can house solar cells. The design also gives homeowners the ability to collect and store rainwater, which could allow the cabin to exist off-the-grid — meaning that it could be self-sustained and rely solely on renewable resources.
