bjarke ingels group designs customizable tiny house that can be built in any location

bjarke ingels group has designed a customizable micro-home that can be built within a rapid time-frame in any location. named ‘A45’, the project is an iteration of the traditional A-frame cabin, known for its pitched roof and angled walls. BIG has developed the qualities of this classic structure with a design that maximizes usable floor area by taking a square base and twisting the roof 45 degrees. this enables the tiny home to boast a soaring 13 foot (4 meter) ceiling height.

externally, the building’s crystal-like form lends the project an ever-changing appearance.internally, the 180 square foot space has been prioritized for comfort and to foster a close relationship with nature. a morsøe wood-burning fireplace is nestled in one corner, while off-grid equipment is tucked away in the back. furniture includes a kitchen designed by københavns møbelsnedkeri, hand-crafted furniture from carl hansen, and a bed fitted with kvadrat fabric designed by søren rose studio. the bathroom is made of cedar wood with fixtures by VOLA.

the dwelling is assembled in modules on site and consists of 100% recyclable materials.this includes the timber frame, wall modules, a subfloor, and the triangular floor-to-ceiling window that comprises seven glass pieces. the structure is slightly elevated on four concrete piers that give optimal support and allow homeowners to place their tiny house in even the most remote areas.
