Modern 301 ft² / 28 m² off-grid tiny house build in the forest with the bath outside

Text description provided by the architects. This off-grid cabin is an escape from the high stress of our client’s busy work life.  Born in Taiwan, she spent her childhood in traditional Japanese houses (built during occupation).  Out of this grew a love for highly crafted minimalist design.  Our brief was to capture that and design a building as a piece of furniture with everything she needs built in.  The only furniture allowed was a low table and mattress on the sleeping loft.

With long views to the south and tall trees to the north, the cabin opens onto an east and west deck, capturing morning and afternoon sun while affording views to the south.  A high roof allowed solar panels and a skylight to catch sun from over the trees.
