Dream a Little Dream…

…as it gets colder in Chicago, I dream of having a warm climate respite.  Enter ÁBATON, one of my favorite architectural firms, located in Madrid.  ÁBATON has developed the ÁPH80 series as a dwelling ideal for 2 people, easily transported by road, and ready to be placed almost anywhere.

The outside is covered with grey cement wood board…

The use of wood throughout the building not only adds calmness and balance but it is also hypoallergenic. The sourced wood comes from regulated forests…

The herd is optional…in my dream, I would have nubian goats…

Manufacturing time is 6-8 weeks.  Assembly time is a mere 24 hours…ÁBATON magic…
