The BIG little house

Have you ever wanted to know what it was like to live in a home designed by a starchitect? Well, this is your chance to live in a tiny home designed by world-renowned architect Bjarke Ingles of BIG.

The micro-house, is a contemporary variation on the steeply pitched A-frame, with a 45-degree twist that sees half of one wall clad in glass and the rest in exposed glulam framing. The glass portion takes on a triangle shape, and allows for seamless views of whatever surroundings the house might be dropped into.

Just under 120 square feet the footprint consists of a ceiling that soars to 12 feet high and a sleeping loft that can be accessed by a ladder. The bathroom is clad entirely in cedar planks, while the kitchen is no bigger than an average closet, with a two-burner stovetop.

It will take approximately 6 months for a house to be ordered, shipped and built. Cost…still TBD.
