West coast Sweden – Torsten Ottesjö
Built area: 25m2 (270 sq. ft.)
This tiny home designed and built by Ottesjö Torsten, may be the most organic home we’ve featured so far. In fact, I can’t look at it without thinking of the sand-worms from the movie Dune. But don’t let that get in the way of reality. This home is an eye-opener.
In the words of the architect:
“With double curved surfaces, compact and efficient planning it is a house on the human scale that blends effortlessly into the surrounding nature.
Situated in the unique cultural landscape of the Scandinavian West Coast, Hus 1 reflects and communicates with its surroundings. The natural materials used in the construction have made it a friendly place for both humans and nature for its whole life cycle.
Hus 1 regularly houses two people all year round but visiting friends always have room. Kitchen, sleeping quarters, dinner table, hallway and other functions are well integrated on just 25 square metres of living space.”
The home is designed and constructed so that it can be easily moved to a new location. Every component is bio-degradable so that eventually, no evidence of the home will remain.
