Tiny house living is becoming a reality for many! In this case, an author from Amsterdam wanted to create a small retreat in a beautiful polder landscape. The 21 sq. meters house had to comply with everyday needs and standards as well as accommodate a feeling of “outdoors” and a strong relation with the surrounding fields. Every element is functional: the staircase that leads to the loft bedroom incorporates the kitchen appliances; the large bay window frame is wide enough for people to sit or lounge; the wardrobe hides a technical room for installations accessed from the outside; the shower has some extra height to serve taller people. Every detail is designed and well-thought together with the client to ensure that flexibility can still be part of a tiny space! Did I mention it is also an all-electric house?
