Many people stuck at home around the world due to the coronavirus pandemic are seeking creative solutions for places to work, study, or just relax. Budapest-based Hello Wood design studio’s solution is the minimalist Kabinka cabin that can be assembled by non-experts.

With the popular rise of tiny homes in the last decade, other companies have proposed similar ideas. US smart office company Autonomous is selling a minimalist, 68 square foot office for up to $15,000. Hello Wood itself is working on other tiny cabins that could be used as offices or retreats, like the Workstation cabin, and the expanded Grand Cabin.

The variety of sizes and prices, depending on how many add-ons buyers choose, could make the Kabinka a more realistic and useful solution than some luxury tiny offices on the market. The smallest option starts at $10,200 for just the structure. 

Here’s what it looks like.
