This tiny beach house has a great story behind it because it was originally designed in 1934 by a famous architect in Paris named Charlotte Perriand.

The design is called La Maison au Bord de l’Eau and the purpose was to create an affordable vacation home option for everyday people.

More recently, the popular fashion organization Louis Vuitton created a clothing line with inspiration from Charlotte Perriand. When they unveiled it, they also decided to bring the original La Maison au Bord de l’Eau to life.

So it was build in Italy and then shipped to Miami, Florida and placed on the beach at the Raleigh Hotel in South Beach to show off at the 2013 Design Miami show. This tiny home consists of two wings and an open patio in the center.

Inside one wing you’ll find the kitchen, living, and dining area. And on the other wing you’ll find two bedrooms and a bathroom. All of the rooms open up to the outdoor space which also functions as extra living space. Pretty nice, isn’t it?

The furniture that you see inside was designed by Charlotte Perriand during the 1930’s and 1940’s. Notice the space-saving slide out beds in the rooms. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!
