Tiny House

cabinski Montafon

St. Gallenkirch, Vorarlberg, Austria

Time out from everyday life but active and contemporary, at a very special retreat. The ten cabins, which stand in a meadow at the edge of the forest in the Montafon, are quite sustainable. Not only that the minimal houses are completely reversible, but from the panoramic window to the well-equipped kitchen, nothing is missing here.

The two founders, Tim Suske and Christopher Eichhorn, founded “cabinski” in 2019 out of their love for the Alps and enthusiasm for mountain sports. With their company, they would like to implement new ideas for resource-saving and environmentally conscious tourism in the Alpine region.

And they have consistently implemented this here in the Montafon: The cabin skis offer an ideal starting point for setting out on seasonal activities in the surrounding nature. The use of high-quality materials in combination with well thought-out functions provides a unique living experience in a small space with great comfort. From the loft beds you can look directly at the starry sky.

ArchitectureA meadow had to be cultivated, but it could only be leased for a certain period of time. So Chris and Tim opted for a reversible and accordingly modular design. So that there is the possibility of complete renaturation of the property. The houses are 10 meters long, 3.5 meters wide and weigh 11 tons and can be transported and assembled as a whole if these parameters are observed. In addition, smaller houses also require fewer resources than building a large house. Constructed primarily of locally sourced spruce and oak, every square inch of space has been well thought out. The partition walls of the timber frame building are filled with waste paper for insulation. In order to keep soil sealing to a minimum, each house stands on four point foundations, each 40 x 30 centimetres. The construction work was carried out almost exclusively with regional companies, in an attempt to keep the distances to the construction site short.

FoodGuests of the cabinski can have fresh bread rolls delivered in the morning and otherwise buy regional products from the farmer next door. There are also tips for sustainable restaurants and the nicest farm shops in the area.

EnvironmentWith the modular construction of the cabins, cabinski already ensures environmentally friendly tourism in the Alps. A very natural greening concept was created on the property itself, which is integrated into the natural environment and offers plenty of green space for insects. Instead of lawns, a natural meadow thrives between the houses. In addition, the more than 200 newly planted plants and almost 40 birch trees bind a lot of CO2. The small houses are also heated with an air-heat pump that runs exclusively on green electricity, and bed linen, soap, dishes and seat mats are also in organic quality.

Umgeben von Wiesen und Bergen gibt es seit Sommer 2020 zehn neue Unterkünfte im Montafon in Österreich. In der Nähe des Drei-Länder-Ecks Liechtenstein, Schweiz und Österreich stehen die Tiny Houses von cabinski. Die zwei Besitzer aus Deutschland wollten sich mit der Errichtung der Ferienanlage einen Traum erfüllen und nachhaltige und naturnahe Unterkünfte errichten, „einen Ort mit Seele“, wie sie sagen.

Klar und schnörkellos ist die Einrichtung in den Tiny Houses, die seit vergangenem Sommer auf einer Wiese in Galgenul im Montafon stehen. Zehn minimalistische Häuschen aus Holz, die zwei junge Männer bauen ließen, um ihre Träume vom Hotel der Zukunft zu verwirklichen: regional, nachhaltig, traditionell und zugleich modern. Geschickt konzipiert gibt es viel Platz auf 10 mal 3,5 Meter Grundfläche. An schönen Tagen verdoppelt ihn der private Garten vor der großen Terrassentür. An weniger schönen kuschelt man sich in Kissen und Wolldecken auf der tiefen Bank vor dem Panoramafenster mit Blick auf die Berge. Inspirierende Literatur gibt es ausreichend in jedem Haus.

Im Montafon sind mit »cabinski« zehn minimalistische Tiny Holiday Homes entstanden, direkt am Waldrand mit Blick auf die Berge. Gebaut sind sie aus naturbelassenem heimischem Holz. Und das Beste: Vom Bett aus sieht man den Sternenhimmel.
