Safe, durable, and guaranteed for 30 years, Monocabin combines technological innovation, functionality, and aesthetic research. Moreover, it protects and enhances the environment thanks to sustainable materials and construction processes. From walls made of a hemp and lime bio-blend to customizable finishes and recyclable accessories, from LED lights to solar panels – which make the home energetically self-sufficient –, every design detail has been studied to combine maximum energy efficiency with an elegant and minimalist aesthetic.

Nature as a friend

Mandalaki’s tiny houses feature large windows that interrupt the structure making the interior bright with natural light. this way, the house is immersed in the surrounding environment while preserving privacy. Lastly, the firm, keeping its focus on conscious and sustainable design, makes Monocabin’s modules with a view to miniaturization, so as to decrease the overall dimensions during the transport reducing the impact of CO2 on the environment.
