Julie’s Tiny House Design

Julie’s tiny house is, as with other recent designs, based upon the square. In fact, the house is composed of 8’ x 8’ squares. This leads to the idea of modularization, where the components of the structure are built elsewhere and then delivered later to the construction area. The vaulted area over the dining area is meant purely to open the central space up, while providing architectural decoration.

We start at the back of the house, looking through the large bedroom window with a covered patio to the left and accessible from the bedroom. The exterior lights are off except for the overhead patio light.

The front of the house. The floor of this house is a highly polished stone and the reason for the high reflectivity.

The front of the house almost straight on showing another corner patio. The wall directly facing us is the kitchen.

You may have noticed a classical feature of this house is that it is based upon a Greek cross, much like some cathedrals. Although the round windows could be replaced with square ones, the intriguing juxtaposition of perfect square to perfect round would be lost. You may also have noticed that the warm colors of green and yellow orange on the outside, contrast with the cool colors of the inside, although other color schemes might work with this house built upon the cube.
