We wanted to build something a little bit different and unique with the view that doing so would get the project a lot more exposure and do it well.
The main idea was to create a simple robust building that was able to reference the materiality.
The elements around it so the small space is maximized by having you know limited internal walls and having a quite open plan the only spot that’s enclosed is the toilet.
One of the main parts of the brief was to create an off-grid sustainable building we needed to get the orientation right for the solar panels so the 30-degree roof means that we get great output from the solar panels which was important the building was designed with a 6.6-kilowatt off-grid solar system.
We have 12 kilowatts of battery storage which is housed away on the western side of the building you don’t see any of that at all it’s behind a big opening panel the building also has 40,000 liters of rainwater storage 20,000 liters of that is reserved for fire fighting.
This building’s in a bushfire prone are the building’s designed for maximum natural ventilation and with maximum insulation values where possible double glazed timber windows and doors are operable.
Inside this Tiny Home
The building can cross ventilate in every direction the flooring is a polished concrete slab the slab was really about grounding the building and the landscape while also providing a good amount of thermal mass.
We lined the building with black butt ply we wanted something a little bit darker and higher end than your normal plywood a ceiling fan provides cooling in summer a small wood fireplace provides heating in winter.
The Kitchen in this Tiny Home
This kitchen is fairly minimal we built it out of some of the leftover timber from the walls and ceiling there’s a two-burner gas cooker and a fridge.
The dining space itself is just an extension of the kitchen bench looking out over the view with a big window that can be opened for natural ventilation the dining area also allows the space to be used as a study or workspace.
The main idea was that a lot of the dining could really happen outside you know by the fire pit sitting on the concrete step outside.
This bedroom has a king-sized bed we had it made locally by a furniture maker in terms of the bed head we’ve used reclaimed bricks from an old chimney that we had on the property it’s quite low to the ground.
It’s positioned under the lowest part of the ceiling so it creates quite an intimate sleeping space the bathroom was intended as an open space really which is about sort of maximizing the feeling of space internally.
But it also allows good views from all angles of the property from both the bath and the shower.
The buildings are positioned in quite an isolated spot on a farm so there are no privacy issues with the open bathroom the only enclosed area in the toilet is the recycled brick bed head.
That just helps mediate between the bathroom area beyond and just gives a little bit of separation to the sleeping space.
