Go Off-Grid in This Prefabricated Cor-Ten Steel Cabin

By Jennifer Baum Lagdameo

In 2011, Scottish artist Bobby Niven and architect Iain MacLeod launched the Bothy Project to offer creatives a chance to experience a remote residency in an off-grid, architect-designed bothy—or hikers' hut—in the Scottish Highlands. The first simple shelter Niven and MacLeod designed, the Inshriach Bothy, was installed in a woodland area in Cairngorms National Park. It has since welcomed many artists looking to experience off-grid living in a spectacular and isolated setting. 

Now, the duo has taken the concept one step further and launched the Artist Bothy. An evolution of their original project, the Artist Bothy is a prefabricated, multipurpose space designed to go off-the-grid and reconnect its owners with nature. Made from sustainable materials, the cabin and can be installed on-site in less than a day. Although it has been designed for off-grid use, the Artist Bothy can also be connected to water and electricity.
