The All Terrain Cabin (ATC)

We thought people all over the world should have a chance to see what Canadians get up to when they turn their heads to design, technology, and other imaginative persuits. The All Terrain Cabin (ATC) was dreamed up to send Canadian design on a world tour of International Design Forums, Consumer Home and Interior Design Shows, Environmental Conferences, and Special Events, as well as more casual visits to small towns, open spaces, and the downtown cores of major urban centres.

For that purpose, we designed a small home, a cabin, using the standard ISO shipping container as the basis for the structure and outfitting it totally with Canadian Design and Technology*. The result is as smart as it is efficient, suitable for a family of four and a pet to live off the grid in comfort and contemporary style. It travels by train, truck, ship, airplane or helicopter, folded up and indistinguishable from any ordinary shipping container. Once it arrives, it unfolds rapidly to 480sf of self-contained, sophisticated living space with all the comforts of home.

This is Canadian Cultural currency on the road, travelling the world for the next four years. Its main purpose is to raise awareness internationally of Canadian capabilities, not just for Canada’s sake, but for the sake of those who want to learn from us about how to live softly, smartly, and stylishly on this shared planet.

The All Terrain Cabin is designed to travel the world celebrating Canada's material culture at international design events, trade venues and cultural gatherings. If you see value in BARK's All Terrain Cabin at your event, contact BARK (info@barkbark.ca) to discuss how the ATC can benefit your organization.

Remember, there's only one ATC in the world and only so many places it will visit. Don't be one of those who has to say: well, we almost brought the ATC here.
