This tiny home in Hohenecken, Germany, is only three meters wide and sits upon skinny metal legs. Local studio Architekturbüro Scheder designed the house using galvanized steel posts, timber cladding and a pitched roof to create a home that draws on the appearance of the surrounding architecture and reinterprets it in order to address the dimension restrictions.
The local planning regulations left only three meters in width between the new house and ts neighbors, and only 3.5 meters to build on. The architects created an asymmetrical structure that looks like a small box from the street but viewed from the side, it shows an elongated shape. The street-facing facade features no windows while the side of the tiny house looks upon the forest and adjacent buildings.
The interior is treated in a similar way as the exterior; it is simple and features white-painted fiberboard walls along with pale maple floors. The narrow stairs lead from the open-plan kitchen and living area to the bedroom area located on the upper floor.
