Ronnie’s Tiny House by Popular Demand

This article is originally from http://www.midcenturymoderngroovy.com.

I keep getting requests for my tiny house designs. Since architecture is art, and even though the subject of tiny houses is not the primary purpose of this website, the houses I design are always modern with a wink at Mid Century Modern. Even so, modern tiny houses are groovy!

Much like Andrea’s Tiny House, this house is based on the square, in this case two overlapping squares. (Again, I live in a desert environment where houses are built on slabs, so I haven’t included a raised foundation.) Aesthetically, as with Andrea’s, circular windows contrasts with the rectilinear forms. To follow the circular windows around the structure, the door repeats this motif. The following images are day views.

One gets the full effect of the circles and squares from a front view.

Admittedly, the kitchen is rather tight and would benefit from the exterior wall in the direction of the front being pushed out a couple of feet. However, this design would still work if the appliances and cabinets were on a smaller scale. This house is around 300 square feet and I will append a floor plan as soon as available. As a hint to orientation, follow the windows. The house is made of two squares where the corners of the squares overlap and form a square that makes the bathroom. One goes through a door in the living area into the bathroom and then another door that leads to the laundry/dining/kitchen area.

I have other very modern designs and will post those at regular intervals.
