Kirimoko Tiny House
Located on a suburban street within Wanaka, an ambitious 30m2 footprint was the brief for this unique one bedroom home. Despite saving space, none of the essentials are missing. The house was designed as a crafted box with not a morsel of space is wasted. Drawers pull out of each step tread and storage is concealed in the toe space under the kitchen joinery.
For the roof and wall structure SIPs (structural insulated panels) were chosen for their high insulation R-value and the convenience of prefabrication. The external palette is limited to asphalt shingles and timber. The shingles carry up the wall and over onto the roof. This reflects the way the building is made as both roof and walls are built of SIPs.
