Fasten your seatbelts, here comes Hello Wood’s flying cabin!

Hello Wood, an architectural studio that is well known for its design cabins as well as its special projects and buildings, has designed and built a more charming and unique forest cabin than ever before, following the client’s ideas.


Hello Wood’s flying cabin is a childhood dream come true. The pastel blue, airplane-shaped cabin is hidden in the embrace of the rolling hills of Zala, surrounded by huge trees. With its friendly curves and round windows, it looks as if it had flown out of a cartoon and landed on the meadow—but when you enter, you’ll find a fully equipped little realm for children.

Hello Wood’s youngest client to date approached the agency with the idea for this unusual dwelling. 12-year-old Lujzi’s dream was to have a cabin where she could retreat, invite her friends over for a playdate, and even for a slumber party—and later use it as accomodation. The special features of the interior—two real airplane seats and aviation souvenirs - were collected by Lujzi and her dad.

We were delighted to take on this unusual assignment. As an architect, it’s a very exciting task to design a building where the aspect is to be cute, and it was an interesting challenge to integrate traditional architectural technology solutions such as waterproofing, vapor barrier, and thermal insulation into the free form”, explains Tamás Fülöp, the project’s lead architect.
