What was important to us?

Here our goal for two people was to build as small as possible and as large as necessary with appropriate storage space and cooling and freezing capacity.

Live & Eat
The light-flooded room was of particular importance in the planning of this area. In addition, we like to sit comfortably opposite each other while eating. The space on both sides gives us the opportunity to comfortably put our feet up and enjoy the panoramic view outside. The entire living area is large enough for a meal for up to four people. It is possible to convert the seating area into a bed.

Sleeping Area
We planned the beds across the direction of travel in order to keep the body as compact as possible. In the sleeping area, we have also attached great importance to a good view of nature. Therefore the window with a view to the rear, which, however, becomes dirty more quickly on longer journeys on dusty roads.
We can separate the sleeping area from the living area with a mosquito net that is magnetically attached to the ceiling and the two side frames.

Bathroom & Toilet
What was important to us here was the possibility of sharing the bathroom area in different rooms on their own. The result was the island solution with a separate toilet room, the separate shower room and the central area around the wash basin.
