This is “The Wedge” built by students at Laney College in Oakland, CA for the SMUD Net Zero Tiny House Competition.
The futuristic home won four awards in 2016, including best design — and I can see why. Their creative tilted back wall creates space for a second loft and comfortable living area. Gotta love something different!

Laney College Students Build Award-Winning “Wedge”
Looks like “The Jetsons” to me!
I like the clear, unobstructed middle lane.
Teal steps are super fun 🙂 They added a railing.
The shelving is open, but nicely situated in one long line.
Cozy spot to curl up with a book.
Always good to see storage stairs.
Do you like induction cook tops?
Tons of pillows! I bet there’s storage under there.
Gotta love a colorful front door.
Well that’s fun and funky storage!
Nice amount of headroom here.
Spacious shower. I’d add a fun geometric print curtain.
How do you like the walls in this tiny house bathroom? Too industrial maybe?
