    I find this very interesting.

    I was curious about the bathroom ‘holders’? I can understand the upward angles but the downward angles, what is their function?

      For the higher up one maybe you could hand a coat or a housecoat. Other than that not sure what would stay on.

        Precisely my thoughts and why the question. Obviously it isn’t ‘cheap’ so I was hoping for the why-fors.

      I see what you mean! At first glance (before reading your comments) I thought the bottom pieces were attached to the wall and just counterbalanced the functional bars. Then I looked again and noticed the shadows behind, indicating they were pointing away from the walls. Silly design, though I suppose you could drill them and add knobs, hooks, and cross-pieces… With a cross-piece at the end to hold it in place, the toilet-paper roll would stay on a lower bar and free up the upper one for another towel or something.

      I do think the one in the bed/sitting room space, used to hang the red stool(s) on the wall to make room for the futon-couch to be put out into Bed mode, is a good idea… but any strong hooks would have worked just as well.

      My favorite thing on this, though, was the provision of a superstructure on the roof to support the awning/canopy. At first I was thinking “Why does she need so much shade in Finland?”, but then looked at those rainy-grey clouds in the background of the photo and realized that, unlike many more “traditional” house styles with porches, loft overhangs, and dormers, it also provides a shelter over both the sliding-glass doors and the single door that opens onto the trailer tongue. It’d be a great feature for someone living in a Tiny House in hot areas, too, and could lessen the need for air conditioning. 🙂

    This house on wheels is gorgeous! One of the few on wheels houses that I have seen that gets me in a state of “I want one of those!”. Beautifully done. Congratulations!

    Wow! I agree with Vic that this house is sophisticated and urbane. I cannot imagine that it was the work of a 23 year old. What a talent she has for spacial design. I would love to walk through this house – it is hard to visualize what kind of storage she has placed behind the cabinet doors. That would be my only concern with this floor plan as it is shown – there seems to be no place in all of its beautiful minimalism for food and clothing storage. I hope it is planned as well for living as it is for beauty. Maybe a video will become available that will give us a more in-depth look. Fabulous design, congratulations to the young architect.

    I must say, a truly refreshing design . . . I like the modern aesthetic of this Finnish designer. I hope she is able to realize her dream home and look forward to new updates on her progress and blog. Though, I am not sure about how comfortable that futon couch/bed will be, her earlier variation on a slatted folding bed on her blog looked promising and more practical, I am surprised she didn’t pursue further modifications of that design to evolve into a similar approach for her couch/bed. Also, I’m with Kate on a reason beyond just aesthetics for the lower half of the wall mounted rack/hanging devices in bathroom and living area. Good luck Ms. Malinen, keep dreaming until you have your perfect fit and actual THoW.

    Very clever and beautiful design! Looks like as much storage as any other tiny house, maybe more. Some things are just because we like them and think they are nice to have around. If they can also function as a towel holder, fine, but not every knob and handle has to function. It can just make us happy being there. Again, very clever design!

    Very intriguing to me. Very stylish. Love what looks like lots of
    storage. I can’t comment on the wall mounted rack which seems
    to be the focus here. I agree with the last commenter. I would enjoy what I could use and enjoy the design or “look” of this piece. Important, tho, in a tiny space for everything to have a function, but, but, but…….I like this alot and would love to see more!

    I too like the overall style – though I do wonder how much storage there is and just how practical it would be… However, it was the awning that fascinated me. Not only is it a shade provider, but potentially also a significant barrier to the noise of rainfall. I’ve tried a couple of metal roofed structures and the noise in a storm is awful.
    Cheers, Graham

    I like the space capsule, futuristic feeling. My favorite part is the lighting on top the bathroom walls. It really gives a feeling of skylights and open space. Makes it seem larger, too. The window treatment on the slider is very good, too. I think the X shaped hooks are sculptural, but could be used as a hanger for clothes. Clever.

    That’s really cool…but…the sail on the top…wind and all that jazz. I’d be concerned about the house blowing over.

    I like it. The size is right and the awning to replace the missing eaves is gorgeous .
    Floor plan isn’t my taste. I see plenty of space wasted with the corridor and a more open plan would provide more living room.
    Huge floor to ceiling doors are another medium to widen a small space.
    Nowadays window technology reduces thermal losses significant. I would add another one and go for French doors instead of sliding ones. However, shutters would help to protect them when under way and during cold nights.
    But its amazing what this girl is brainstorming and her goal to set up a tiny house community in her country is outstanding.
    Did you see the beautiful pictures of the area she is living? Have a look, you are not going to be disappointed.

    It looks like those composting toilets take up A LOT of room.

    This one seems a little straight line-ish for me. There’s no comfortable home vib either. It strikes me as cold.

    While I like contemporary designs, some of them I categorize as a “sterile” look. This one seems to fit that category, perhaps because it is a sketch. I think smooth lines and simplicity are great with a tiny house, but there’s an element of warmth that is needed, as well.
    Sorry guys, this one doesn’t do it for me. I’m out.

      Why do you think it is a drawing? I see others think so too. Curious.
      – I also think that the designer was going for a “sterile” look. It was posted here to show a different style than has been posted before, to keep people interested because people get bored when they see the same thing all the time. I think we should encourage diversity, not discourage it.

      • Kat

        To Lori Lou: I agree. Diversity also is artful in accepting differing opinions. Which is why we are allowed to comment on the postings and see other perspectives. Thank you for bringing this to light.

    Interesting design and very stylish. Bit too much corridor and not enough open space for me though. One thing I would be very careful about is positioning hooks and other protruding details. Having lived small and tiny for many years I notice you get very used to your own space and can avoid getting snagged on things or making large movements that knock things over but guests are often another story. People who are used to lots of space can be very clumsy in a tiny house. Extra points for the prominent fire extinguisher!
