Situated amongst tall mature fir and cedar trees and just off from the edge of a gradient that slopes towards a lake, this small house, with a total area of 40 square meters is both cute and homely. It was designed by David Vandervolt Architects and is focused around the idea of space saving. The exterior has been made from red slate with wooden inserts and structural beams which help give it a natural and rustic look and feel. Inside, you are greeted by a very warm and inviting atmosphere with cosy furniture and functional rooms. Despite its small size the house has a kitchen, dining area for meals, living room, bathroom and bedroom in the attic. Existing vegetation on the site has been fully preserved and the architects have used materials with a long life cycle, such as metal roofing and wooden floors made of fir.
