- TINY HOUSE for short vacations - M4
The prefabricated TINY HOUSE is a limited blueprint building sitting on a 25 m2 space. The structure comprises of four main modulars which are delibrately designed to accomodate a kitchen/dining, living, sleeping and sanitary areas. This project is purposely tailored to accomodate two persons during short vacations and it also serve as a platform to strengthen and expalin the importance of building with wood and modular systems. Without site specificity, the TINY HOUSE showcases the possibilities of living big in a small space with great comfort. Further, it acts as a strategy to reduce the human footprint on the environment and save energy as well.
The eco-friendly design proposal sits on just six reinforced concrete footings to elevate it from moisture. Air flow below the structure allows the building to remain cold during the summer and in winter hinders any accumulation of condensed water within the building.
The deliberate design with an extra ceiling helps to create enough head room for living/kitchen areas and further ensures the penetration of sunlight into the building. Compact living space with enough daylight connects the interior structure to the outdoor.
Hanging lights on the interior strengthens the brightness of the building particularly at night. As a design statement of the panels, it is suggested to have them prefabricated together with the door and window fittings in order to speed up the construction process.
Space for the kitchen/dining is designed without interfering with the living space activities. The wooden interior helps to reduce any painting cost of the building.
Due to the limited blueprint of the building area, space saving design ideas are reflected on the furniture desposition with full height sliding doors. In other words, furniture for this project are crafted with space saving design ideas to transform the interior of the building to a larger space.
A Porch is provided to maximize the outdoor living space and the creation of relaxation space during the summer periods. Rain water harvesting possibilities and the provision of simple water tanks is envisaged in the design.
