Australian Family Build Tiny Studio called ‘The Pod’

Check out this modern tiny studio designed as a ‘granny flat’ for visiting family members. In 2012 an Australian family had this studio designed by Taft|Studio for Architecture.

The family wanted to give their parents a nice place to stay while visiting for long summers. This allowed them to stay longer and feel more comfortable staying for months while their grandchildren were out of school.

They made the open living area include a small kitchen and dining table, along with plenty of cabinets. Take a close look at the colorful back splash in the kitchen area. It’s made from stacked Legos with a piece of glass over it. Cool, right?

Nestled inside is also a compact bedroom and bathroom. Giving them plenty of privacy away from the main living house.  The studio is connected to the main house by a deck with a covered veranda.

In my eyes I could live in this small space without a doubt.

There is a glass skylight that reaches the length of the tiny studio providing more natural light throughout. Also gives beautiful garden views surrounding the studio. The more windows/light the better in my opinion.

I love the zen vibe about this place. I could definitely live in something like this. What about you?

If you were this Australian family would you consider possibly living in the studio while renting out the larger house?

Just an idea.
