TINY HOUSE for a minimalistic lifestyle or scaling down from
a larger house into a smaller and smarter one is a perfect
solution with this proposal - M4. The prefabricated TINY
HOUSE is a limited blueprint building sitting on a 25 m2
space. The structure comprises of four main modules which
are deliberately designed to accommodate a kitchen/dining,
living, sleeping and sanitary areas.
This project is purposely tailored to accommodate two
persons comfortably and could be easily expanded to meet
further wishes and it also serve as a platform to strengthen
and explain the importance of building with Kerto LVL 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 disposition 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.

A platform that provides a cheaper alternative means in spending quality vacations in a Tiny House than expensive hotels. With the provision of wood and modular construction systems, value is added in tacklying climate change.
