When examining various types of tiny houses, one usually reads of tiny houses on wheels, diminutive structures made from shed or cabin kits, garage transformations, less on new buildings with a foundation and even yurts. Yet on the subject of modern tiny residences, little is mentioned about the geodesic dome. Indeed, if one cursorily looks…Continue reading What About a Dome?
This design is a variation on the Round House. Many of the rectilinear elements of the Round House are removed and replaced with curved forms. The main inspiration for this tiny house comes from two houses in Phoenix, Arizona known as the David and Gladys Wright Home and the Norman Lykes Home. Both these houses are…Continue reading A Frank Lloyd Wright Inspired Tiny House

A juxtaposition of curved and rectilinear forms, although they might seem in conflict, produces an interesting contrast between the opposing thrusts in the design. Front entrance to the Round House showing the roof over the…Continue reading The Round House
Using the same inspiring mid-century modern arch from Patricia’s Tiny House, I have separated the form, similar to a pilaster, from surface decoration and surrounded a tiny dwelling ¾ of the way with arches. Charlie’s Tiny House, much like Patricia’s is totally influenced by the modernity of 20th century American design. The introduction of curved…Continue reading Charlie’s Tiny House: Mid Century Modern

Why there are not more examples of the manufactured…Continue reading From Gizmag: Alpod mobile home shows its metal
Modern tiny house design. Darla’s Tiny House.
The previous tiny house based on the Eames House only included the main building and did not feature the studio, courtyard, and walkway. This design does. As was previously mentioned, a loft would be part of this design. The loft, however, is not in the main building, but in the studio and could function as…Continue reading Eames Case Study House #8 Goes Tiny: Complete Addition
