Home is a domain that is intimate to all of us. Beyond its everyday function as a physical shelter for people and their activities, it connects with its user on a personal and emotional level. The modern day scenario of environmental and financial concerns along with the desire to have more freedom has led people to follow simpler and efficient ways of living. With the rapid growth of technology and smart living there lies an opportunity for efficient spaces with the feeling of homeliness and personal touch points.
The Tiny House Movement celebrates this concept of simple yet resourceful living. The homes can be designed as an innovation of maximum usable space in minimum footprint, thus redefining sustainability.
The Design of the house should be innovative and creative with a sustainable edge. Mobility should be addressed as an integral component. The house need not be self-mobile but should be treated more as an extension which can easily be towed by a Car or Pickup truck.
