In the past couple of decades, architectural companies showed more attention to building large mansions and apartment buildings, simply because people were more fascinated by the idea of owning something massive in size. Recently, this craze has minimized, with many people interested in buying a house looking for something that is either normal in size (1-2 bedrooms) or small. A house like this may not serve as their main living place, but as their getway home, which doesn’t need to be more than 30 m2. Bjarke Ingels Group is a construction company that offers the opportunity to anyone interested to own a tine A-frame cabin anywhere they want.
A45 is the first prototype that was built in upstate New York and can be customized inside and outside based on the needs of every client.
The traditional A-frame cabin needs only 4-6 months to be built and clients can choose the location and the size.
The extremely high roof makes the cabin look bigger, while being a great asset for rain run-off.
The entire space measures 16 square meters (180 square feet), with its A-frame construction making it feel twice in size.
The bathroom is made entirely of cedar wood and it will make anyone feels like they are in some Nordic traditional guest house.
The furniture is hand-crafted by Carl Hansen and the bed was designed by Soren Rose Studio.
The entire A45 structure is made of recyclable materials, including the timber frame, wall modules, a subfloor and the triangular ceiling-roof.
It kinda looks cozy and spooky at the same time, don’t you think?
The tiny house is elevated by four concrete piers, which allow its placement in pretty much any place a client wants it to be installed. Also, the roof features seven glass pieces, so that lighting can enter the interior.
