The Small Houses movement (or Tiny home movement) is a popular way of referring to the architectural and social movement that advocates living in small houses and in a simple way.
Tiny VS Big
Larger houses are more expensive in terms of construction costs, taxes, maintenance and repair, heating and cooling methods.
Mini-houses represent great savings and promote a less disorganized life, reducing the ecological impact.
The typical size of the tiny homes is about 500 square feet (46 m2), emphasizing the design and optimization of space over the size.
They usually have multi-functional furniture and incorporate the most technologically advanced equipment to save money.
Vertical optimization is very common in mini-houses, with the implementation of inter-connected slopes so as not to waste the space on high. The thermal solutions with insulation, special woods, natural cooling systems, strategic windows that allow to illuminate and ventilate, are characteristics that are repeated in this type of constructions.
