Land Rover received a special request from a very important old friend. They were asked to build a cabin in a secret location that could withstand freezing temperatures, and was cozy enough for a festive getaway.
Mads Lindstrom, the architect of the wilderness cabin, describes it as “somewhere to sleep and somewhere to rest” and “where you can put your luggage and kind of a base for your trip”.
When reviewing the plans and deciding how to transport the pieces of the cabin, Land Rover weighed all of their options. They finally decided on the Discovery Sport due it’s size and ability to conquer all terrains.
“When we first received the brief we knew it was going to be a challenge, but immediately we looked at the Discovery Sport because of the load space,” Land Rover Engineer, Muhammed Malik states. “I was confident that the wilderness cabin would fit in.”
Climber and adventurer Kenton Cool knows a thing or two about camping out in the freezing temperatures. He has climbed Mount Everest twelve times. He took a look over the cabin design to make sure it would stand up in the freezing wilderness.
“Our VIP guest is going to spend an awful lot of time probably getting very cold. Having looked around the cabin here today, you take it out in the wild it’s going to be totally fit for purpose. If I came across one of these I’d think it was Christmas come early.”
The cabin was built in pieces and then transported in the Discovery Sport and put together in the secret location.
With the seven seats we wanted sliding seats as well so you can have an extra 160 ml at your boot space for your family holiday,” Helen Ali, Land Rover Engineer, states, “or in this case to take a wilderness cabin on an adventure.”
With the Discovery Sport’s help, the cabin is built and ready to go for Land Rover’s old friend. Just in time for a festive getaway, and all for a good Claus!
