2019 WIN Awards: Tiny Holiday home - i29 interior architects & Chris Collaris

Tiny Holiday home - i29 interior architects & Chris Collaris is an entry in the One-off homes, large and small category at the 2019 World Interiors News Awards.

“With a footprint of only 55 m2 this house still has a luxurious feel of space, and all around panoramas to the surrounding nature.”

This compact home is built for a family of four, including a living room, a kitchen/dining room, a patio, three bedrooms, one bathroom and two toilets. The layout is developed from the inside-out, the smart arrangement of functions make use of every cm2.

Situated on an elongated island plot close to the lake, the positioning of the building volume is related to the views on the surrounding water and the orientation on the sun. By dividing the volume into four parts, the panoramic views and the invading sunlight become very specific.

A smart arrangement of functionalities defined the layout of this tiny home. Four separate volumes are interconnected around one central patio which result in an efficient layout, using integrated custom furniture.

Each volume has its own program, while the boundaries between inside and outside are being blurred due to large expanses of glass. On the outside the diversity in size and the interconnected positioning create a sculptural image, looking different from every angle. On the inside, the dimensions and ceiling heights of the different volumes clearly articulate the separate areas and functions in the house. Long sight lines crossing the outside patio provide a visual connection.

I29 & Chris Collaris made use of simple materials like natural oak wooden panels -or stained black to combine with the rough pinewood facade- and a continuing polished concrete floor.
