Somewhere on Galiano Island, near Vancouver, Canada stand a very tiny house which design firm Trim Studio built for a young couple. The house, if we can even call it that, is meant to serve as a vacation retreat for its owners and friends. The size restrictions dictated that its footprint had to be no larger than 100 square feet and that it could be no taller than 16 feet. As a result, the studio built this little structure that’s just barely over 9 square meters across but made sure to include in it everything their clients wanted. That meant the tiny house had to have a living area, a kitchen, a wood-burning stove, a bathroom, a bedroom, firewood storage and also a patio and an outdoor shower.
This little retreat feels secluded but at the same time has access to a gorgeous panoramic view. It has a N-E orientation and large windows and sliding glass doors that help it feel larger than it actually is. A large porch wraps around it on three sides, featuring an outdoor shower on one side and a grill and log storage area on the other. It’s connected to a deck with a jacuzzi and a lounge area, raised off the ground and oriented towards the gorgeous views.
