The tiny living movement is flourishing in many parts of the world, and while some see its incredible success as an effect of the ongoing housing affordability crisis, others consider it an ideal lifestyle that allows them to embrace freedom and live in harmony with nature. That's why many of those who decide to downsize their lives look for tiny houses that seamlessly integrate with their surroundings. 
One such tiny home is the Nobel model from Australia-based BIG Tiny Homes. Measuring 7.2 meters (24 feet) in length and 2.4 meters (8 feet) in width, Nobel is an extremely well-built compact dwelling that is not only luxurious but also highly functional and is a real joy to live in.

The company behind this build has its headquarters in Gold Coast, Queensland, and its co-founders Matt Heldon and Ian Janetzki have extensive experience in design and construction, having collaborated on countless projects, from luxury single-family turnkey homes to large-scale multi-unit developments, since 2000. Their declared mission for their tiny house venture is to deliver "beautiful, spacious and affordable tiny homes for anyone who dreams about an independent free life."

We already know that Aussie builders are extremely skilled and imaginative when it comes to crafting amazing tiny homes that prove compact living doesn't have to be about compromise. The Nobel model is a great example.

Effortlessly elegant with a modern exterior that combines black metal siding with cedar accents, this home on wheels fits perfectly in any natural setting, so prospective owners can use it however they want. It could function as a holiday house near a lake, a luxury mountain chalet, a backyard granny flat, a chic studio, or even a permanent home.

As for the interior, it is stylish, incredibly well-appointed, and highly optimized to leverage the environment around it and increase the living area. For instance, with the addition of a front deck, dwellers can extend the living room to the outside. A full-light door and a large pass-through window allow for a seamless indoor-outdoor flow, which is a terrific way to bring more light and nature into your everyday life.

Moreover, with large glazing throughout and an interior design dominated by white, this home is very bright and luminous, making you feel like you're floating on cloud nine. In order to avoid monotony, the designers combined the white walls and cabinetry with gray accents for contrast, natural materials, brown rugs, blankets, and throws, and some potted plants and greenery to liven up the space.

Despite its single-loft floorplan, this compact dwelling can offer accommodation for up to five people with an L-shaped sofa, an elevator double bed above the lounge, and a queen-size sleeping loft. This configuration allows even growing families to downsize and embrace a simpler way of life. At the same time, the open-plan layout, with no walls or partitions, creates a seamless flow between the different functional areas and gives an incredible feeling of spaciousness.

There are a lot of things that make Nobel an exceptional tiny home in terms of functionality, and one of them is the unusual living room configuration. Apart from a generous L-shaped sofa that can seat up to eight individuals and a wall-mounted TV, this space also houses an enormous floor-to-ceiling closet and the aforementioned elevator bed that disappears into the ceiling when not in use. As such, this area of the house works double duty as a lounge during the day and a sleeping space during the night.

As in most tiny homes, the kitchen is the heart of the design, occupying a great portion of the main floor and offering dazzling views through panoramic sliding windows. Eye-catching glossy white cabinets not only elevate the aesthetics of the living space but also help maintain a clean look. There is plenty of storage for cooking essentials, as well as generous counter space for meal prep, and in terms of functionality, the kitchen is equipped with a sink, a two-burner gas or electric cooktop, an oven, and an apartment-size refrigerator.

Across from the cooking space lies a beautiful breakfast bar under a pass-through window, which can also function as a serving area, dining table, or even work desk. Since there is a seamless transition between the kitchen/dining area and the lounge, this part of the house is perfect for hosting and entertaining guests, while its location near the door and window offers those inside beautiful views of the surroundings.

The only loft in this home lies above the bathroom and is spacious enough to fit a queen-size bed. If you don't need the extra sleeping space, it can be configured as a home office, a secondary lounge, a kid's room, or simply storage space.

The bathroom inside Nobel follows the same design language as the rest of the house, with white walls, finishings, and fixtures that give it a luxurious look. Though quite compact, it offers all the basics, including a shower, a toilet, and a vanity with ceramic sink and storage space.

After being trapped in cities for years, many people have started re-evaluating what really matters and decided they need to reconnect to nature in order to find balance and happiness. The Nobel tiny home is a great abode for anyone looking to exchange the bustling urban environment for a peaceful landscape in the middle of nature.  A turnkey-ready unit will set you back AUD $129,000 (approx. US$ 84,750).
