CURBED's Liz Stinson reports that when Cabin Spacey first came onto the tiny home scene in 2016, it had the noble goal of solving the very real urban problem of under-utilized space. At the time, the Berlin-based startup imagined its 370 square foot tiny homes sitting on rooftops or in parking lots, effectively extending a city’s usable housing stock by building on top of what already existed.

Two years later, the team behind the sleek, pre-fab houses is building on that idea by turning their cabins into a network of “pay-as-you-go” living spaces called the Minimal House. The cabins are aimed at “urban nomads,” a close cousin to the digital nomad, an upwardly mobile, city-hopping young professional whose concept of home has spurred a movement of flexible, stylish, hotel-like living arrangements.
