Award-winning architects

Designed in partnership with our friends at Koto.

Turns out, Americans aren't historically world-class at designing small spaces… so we enlisted the help of Koto, a UK-based design studio with roots in Scandinavian architecture. Together, we're proud of the well-designed living space that Abodu provides.

And, we'll make it easy.

We take care of everything. No need to deal with construction crews in your backyard for months - we'll be quick and painless.
