For those who are bored with the crowd of the city, the idea of living in an environment far from the city, and being in touch with nature has now become attractive. To turn this idea into reality, you can take your tent and set it up wherever you want. However, for some of us, this solution may not be very realistic due to the tiny creatures found in the natural environment. But for those who want to escape the city life and live away from the tiny creatures, there are really tiny cottages and houses. The tiny house in this article is a very good example of this.
The pioneer of the “World Architecture” movement, Japanese architect Tono Mirai created his latest work, the tiny house in the middle of the forest- as if it were sprouting from the ground. At first glance, this tiny house looks like an organism that lives in harmony with the forest. Earth and wood were used in the construction of this tiny house, whose shape resembles a half egg.
The small front porch, which gives the feeling of being a part of nature with its appearance, resembles an owl beak. This makes the mini house more attractive and eye-catching.
No modern materials were used in the construction of this tiny house. Native Japanese red pine, cypress, and cedar timber are the woodwork of the tiny house, and the local builders built the house. No nails were used in the construction of the house, but a traditional Japanese technique was applied to a circular skeleton.
The walls, built with earth on a wooden frame, meet all the standards of modern energy-saving tools. Wooden cream tiles placed on the walls both provide impermeability and increase their s harmony with the environment by forming a patina over time.
The tiny house with a view of Mount Asana, the most active volcano in Honshu city, is 1 meter above the ground. The first floor of the building, which is planned as two floors, has a kitchen and living area opening to the veranda. In this section, there is also a wooden platform with futon beds hidden under it, where you can enjoy your meals. Just behind it is a wooden door that opens to the bathroom and storage.
The stove, which is used for heating and placed in accordance with the curved structure of the wall, is quite impressive.
The second floor, reached by wooden stairs, is the sleeping area. Beautiful natural light enters through small windows that open to the stylish roof with curved beams.
It is possible to stay in this tiny house in all weather conditions. Whether hot or cold, it will provide you with the comfort you want.
