Armored House


The Dutch design firm Atelier Van Lieshout the Vostok Cabin — a mobile, steel-plated shelter. The walls are recycled from ships and the cabin comes equipped with benches, a toilet, and a wood stove. It’s more of an art project than a practical design. The designers write:

The material due to its previous life is crooked, damaged and irregular. There is no straight edge to be constructed from these disastrous supplies.

The Cabin looks like an improvised defense/attack apparatus made by a local blacksmith in order to have a better chance of survival in times of revolution and civil war.
