The units were connected without trying to camouflage it but instead used the space in the most creative way possible. A color-block design helped with that, as each area has its own vibrant color. The extensive use of ceiling-to-floor glass walls also amplifies the feeling of spaciousness and connection with the surroundings.
The open-space layout includes a generous bedroom with a great view, a kitchen, a bathroom, and open shelves throughout, for storage and easy access. The bathroom is particularly interesting because it’s divided into three separate areas – the toilet, the sink, and the shower- so that multiple people can have access to it at the same time.
The gorgeous tiny dwelling is also extended outdoors by a wooden deck and an exciting lounge area with two nets, perfect for relaxing while admiring the view.
Estudio Lapinha was created by the Plano Livre architecture studio for an exhibition, but the prototype was then reassembled in the current location. Even the use of the locally-sourced construction units was unplanned due to the fact that standard shipping containers were more challenging to find because of the pandemic. Estudio Lapinha proved that ingenious design, paired with an elevated style, can turn almost anything into a welcoming home.
Similar to other modular designs that can be reassembled anywhere and easily replicated, this modern tiny home paves the way for a new perspective on sustainable yet stylish living.
