Tiny Homes

By Justin Vood Good Ph.D., Author and Architectural Critic

 

Hans Lohse’s Tiny Homes are the result of over 50 years

of architectural research into housing and building construction

that embodies deeply principles of sustainability and environmental harmony,

sacred and unfolding geometry, and profound comfort.

 

Sacred Geometry

Designed following principles of unfolding wholeness,

Each home creates sacred space –

space which is small in terms of square footage,

and yet feels and functions as a much larger space.

Unlike experiments in tiny housing which simply shrink a conventional dwelling

down in size making them feel cramped inside,

Tiny Homes are unfolded from a design seed,

making them feel expansive, alive and cozy.

 

Sustainable and Non-violent Living

Few houses even now aspire towards true sustainability, but Tiny Houses do.

They are totally off-grid, transportable, relying on solar power, composting,

super efficient use of space, and local water resources,

creating a truly tiny ecological footprint.

They are both tiny and extremely efficient and ecologically-inspired.
