The cabin is located in Mudgee, New South Wales, far away in Australia. In an immense farm dedicated to the breeding of sheep, this construction is a small but miraculous refuge within that immensity of land.

Of only 3 m x 3 m of floor and with a total of 18 square meters of living space, this construction consists of two floors where one or two people can temporarily live. Its interior has the essential services and an iron stove, completely essential to withstand the harsh winter of the mountain. Completely covered with copper plates, its sandwich-paneled structure allows some interior insulation.

Likewise, when closing all the panels the tower is transformed into a capsule that can isolate you from the storms and blizzards and the fires that sometimes strike these almost wild lands. It is equipped with a cistern in the back that takes advantage of the rainwater and even nearby has a rustic toilet also made with wood covered with copper plate as the cabin.
