A Couple’s Tiny Trailer House Which They Can Travel The World With

Studio Baluchon which specializes in custom-made tiny houses has a wonderful portfolio that you can check out and one of their latest projects was this beautiful house on wheels which they called Ala Köl. It was built for a couple living in France and it includes some really interesting and inspiring features were we’re going to take a closer look at in a moment.

The house is built on a 6-meter long trailer and has a simple but also stylish and playful aesthetic. The off-center roofline adds a bit of flair and character to the design and helps the house stand out. Another notable design feature is the side wall which contains the entrance. This is made predominantly of transparent glass which allows natural sunlight to go through but also allows a nice view from inside of the surrounding area as well as the other way around. The rest of the house’s exterior is clad in vertical cedar boards. The asymmetrical gray metal roof transitions into a straight wall on one side, ultimately the house a two-tone design.

The truly special features can be found inside the house. Given the limited proportions of the house, the designers made sure to take advantage of every little space. They created an inviting main area furnished with a comfortable sofa and a fold-down expandable table which can be used for a variety of different activities. This space transitions into a small kitchen with a stove, a mini-fridge, a stylish black sink and a good amount of storage inside the mint green cabinets as well as on the shelves. At the rear of the house are the bathroom with a walk-in shower, a laundry area and a storage closet. The loft bedroom can be reached via the storage stairs and has its own custom shelving unit with accent lighting and a couple of windows that give a really nice view from above.
