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.
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.
