A tiny house situated in the dense natural environment. Greatly limited space with a maximum function yet dearly close to the environment.
Elmwood Park is the home of enormous natural existence. It houses mature trees, and some beautiful birds and wildlife. It defines the natural environment on its best. Imagine what one can do in this place? A place with feeling of peace.
A tiny barn house sits surrounded by high trees, ferns, and many plants. The courtyard designed to be a well-preserved garden with colourful plants. The path surrounding the house covered in red-brownish leaves. A huge buried river stone spotted as a steppingstone just before the house deck gave out a strong feeling of the natural environment.
A square-shaped garden covered in pale white crust stones with a wooden table and bench under the tree gives the impression of a peaceful living place.
A slightly contrasted with the outer part of the house, you will see a clean slate of white wall on the inside. There is a hanging art decoration on the wall, but the major white colour gives this tiny house a bigger size look. The ceiling also painted in white.
The main sight-stopper is the all-side picture window that is installed on the same side of the house. They even make it completely see-through with a glass door. The view from the inside is all-green trees with its trunk and branches and giant ferns.
The house is an open floor, making the whole parts of the house are visible except the bedroom. The living room is totally simple and minimalist. There is a couple of bouncy wooden lounge chair with red seating and splat. Directly next to it is a breakfast-for-two table, followed with the kitchen.
A modern one-wall kitchen, the cabinetry and even the countertop are coloured in white. Even the well-placed hanged microwave is coloured white. Perfectly blends with the cabinet as it isn’t there.
Once again, they made a surprising touch with triangular picture window located on the top part of the bedroom wall. The illuminated green leaves from the tree outside are seen from the inside.
The room is totally in white, with minimalist black-white striped bed and bedside table at every side.
The bathroom designed in a compact yet beautifully functional. The white theme is still strong with combination of blurred glass door and window. With such tiny space, they utilise the use of bathroom curtains in its best.
Utilising a barn house in a tiny spaced house is pretty difficult. Without abandoning the close relation between barn house and nature, and minimalist modern concept into one house, a good concept has been born.
