A small oasis in the middle of nature
In the mountainous valley of the Glarner Alps, Timto constructed on a rural site next to a country road a single storey one -person tiny house in 2020. The building is cladded in a black stained vertical timber façade, flat openable roof lights bring light into the internal rooms as bathroom and utility. Sliding doors open to a small external seating area with views over the garden.
The building is organised as an open plan living quarter, from the side entrance with cloak area the room opens to a sizeable living room with cooking facility, the bathroom and utility is arranged towards the rear of the house. A small wood stove creates a warm atmosphere.
The L-shaped floor plan is defined by three standard modules of 3m x 3m each, which rest on round concrete footings. Combining 2 modules creates an open plan arrangement for dining, kitchen and living space. The warm colours of walls and furniture blend with wooden ceilings and floor finishes.
