PACO Tiny House

This interesting Micro House is an interesting approach to the needs of day to day life.  Taking space utilization to an extreme, the designers have taken very practical approaches to meeting the needs of the resident.

From the outside, the micro compact Paco House is a tiny cube, measuring three meters square. The contemporary prefab home boasts a minimal white facade devoid of details, yet it’s oddly intriguing. Designed with space efficiency in mind, Paco House was created with a minimal footprint – both physically and environmentally speaking – in order to blend into its environment with little impact to its surroundings. Because of its small dimensions, Paco doesn’t require an infrastructure. Eighty per cent of the home is manufactured in a plant, allowing for customization to the home and virtually endless possibilities for geographic placement. Paco House packs alternative energies into its small but oh-so-sweet design. This eco-friendly self-contained accommodation features solar and wind energy, water recycling and a biodegradable toilet.

Hanging Bedroom

5

I found this really interesting apartment white is unique in many ways, but stands out for one reason.  The Bedroom hangs…  It’s kind of odd, but I really like it.  The owners wanted to maintain the great height while having a separate bedroom.  Here is what DeZona Said about the apartment:

This former artist studio characterized by a difference in height which shares the volume from a simple to a fake double height (3.70 m under ceiling in the main room) had been originally 1marqued by a awkward mezzanine under which one couldn’t be up and had, to get on it, to pass through a small doorway managed into a separating wall existing between the 2 volumes.

First step the plan is freed from all occurrences. The matter is to work on a 50-sqm apartment in which the variety of orientations, volumes make possible unusual, uncommon living situations.

The restraint of the demand of the client to fit out an independent bedroom has been turned into an advantage by putting this intermediary room in a central position, straddling the two floor levels, disconnected from the floor. The bedroom becomes an islet in the heart of the apartment around which you can turn, experimenting different moods: up / down, below / above, on / under and revealing unseemly uses.

The bedroom, connoted as the archetype of privacy, intimacy, becomes an object of curiosity by transgressing his symbolic value, appearing like an anomaly. Open and visible from the entry, it stands for huge inhabited furniture. Facing the dining room, it can be used as a “bumrest” or a bench.

The bedroom as a hut in the middle of the flat

Suspended right in the center of the apartment, leaving untouched the floor and the circulations around, it divides the space, reversing the perception of the atmosphere in the apartment by making private what is usually not: the living room.4

Wherever you stand below or above, it truncates the perception of the occupier’s bodies of which one only sees the legs sitting, crossing or walking around in the place.

The suspended bos is made of a metallic structure (section 40 x 40 mm) covered with wooden panels. The cube – as well as the floor, the walls and the ceiling, has been painted with a white polyurethane resin.
