The Elsewhere cabin offers visitors a serene off-grid experience

Elsewhere, an Austin-area vacation rental company, commissioned architect Sean O’Neill to design their first cabin. The goal was to create a compact living space with everything one would need for a weekend of focus and fresh air.

This would give guests a greater sense of detachment and allow periodic relocation. To this end, the architect designed the cabin on a trailer base with on-board utilities. Solar panels provide power for lighting, hot water, and wifi.
