The building is carefully oriented to take advantage of natural lighting, heating and cooling while keeping its impact on its site to a minimum. The redwood bark facade was sourced from a neighboring sawmill, and the doors look like secret compartments, with the front side of the space designed as one large glass folding element. These folding mechanisms are introduced to enable natural ventilation on stifling nights.
The tiny house features a green roof covered with native wildflowers and coastal grasses. Sitting lightly on the land, the structure is a discrete addition to the surrounding ecosystem that establishes an almost seamless transition between the natural and the manmade.
