OFF THE GRID
Can you design a tiny home?

Archiol | Artuminate Competitions

INTRODUCTION

INTRODUCTION
Tiny house: an eco-friendly housing solution.
Our lives are dependent on the systems that complete our housing requirements, what happens if these grid systems fail? The sustainable approach to housing is important for human survival. Can we design our dream home within the limit of 37sq.m. and off the grid? With spaces that fulfill all the basic functioning of the house most innovatively and effectively. Explore your capacity to come up with ideas that can fit within the limited space, mainly focusing on sustainability.

This competition aims to address the issue of:
• Dependency of housing systems on the grid system
• The ever increasing wants over needs
• The financial constraints
• The exploitation of Nature – impact on the environments
• Encroaching the space of other living beings


“Less is more.”
– Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe


We expect:
Design a home that matches the idea of your dream home with all the necessary functions at only one condition that it should be ‘off the grid’. Home for a maximum of two people with interesting and innovative spaces.


Keywords: Off-grid, Tiny Home, Sustainable Home
• Off - Grid: Without using or depending on public utilities.
• Tiny Home: Downsizing living spaces, simplifying and essentially living with less.
• Sustainable Home: Efficient use of energy and resources with minimal impact on the environment.



“More was never the answer. The answer, it turned out, was always less.”
– Cait Flanders.
