Living In An Airstream

Living In An Airstream

From shipping containers to garbage trucks, we're fascinated by small space living on the go. This home may be more conventional, mobility-wise; but after reading Andreas Stavropoulos' inspiration and story to remodel and live in a vintage Airstream trailer, this home is definitely out of the ordinary.

The inspiration behind Stavropoulos' home stems from his profession as a landscape architect. When he became self-employed, he found an urgency to surround himself with his medium.

"Whereas landscape architects once spent significant time on the site, the profession now finds some of the most creative minds shoehorned into cubicles. This seemed like a loss to me, and I wondered how it might be possible to create a space for real understanding within the profession—the kind of understanding that occurs from seeing a day of shadows move across a place, or listening to and observing people in a space," he writes.

With this simple and stylish Airstream studio that he renovated himself (both the interior and exterior), Stavropoulos is able to travel and work on site. By the looks of these photos and the rest of the gallery on Dwell.com, we're fairly convinced that Stavropoulus is living a modern-day version of Walden.
