Inspiration from architect:

The outside is finished in oak wooden boarding, and is only interrupted by a circular window that lets light through and offers views out to the surrounding meadow. The rounded roof shape was repeated on the inside, with the edges of the walls curved using plywood. Flexible shelving was integrated into the layout so that the trailer can be used in multiple ways.
