Grimshaw, an Australian architectural firm, created a 35-metre-square tiny house. The Peak, the name of the house, is designed to provide young people in affordable homes. The micro-homes could be easily accommodated with IKEA furniture. The tiny house has a double-height ceiling, and there is sufficient space for a queen-sized bed. The housing prices are extremely high in Australia's cities, so this could be a great option.

The Price Of The Peak

The pre-assembled tiny homes start at A$110,000 (€67,680), the fully equipped version costs A$150,000 (€92,292).

About Grimshaw

Grimshaw Architects has been watching the tiny house movement for a while now, and they wanted to design something a bit different than the regular micro homes. So, they created the Peak.

Usually, tiny houses are very small and look a bit like a developed caravan. Grimshaw wanted something else: he wanted to offer an affordable home, more liveable, and with high-quality design. More than you would expect from a micro home. Grimshaw chose to give the home high ceilings, that offers a greater sense of space.


What is the best insulation to use in a tiny house?
You do have insulation choices beyond spray foam. Fiberglass batts are most commonly used by tiny house builders and, with sufficient thickness, provide excellent insulation.


Made From What?

The pre-assembled units are made of high-quality laminated wood, and by using the dimensions of the IKEA components to determine the layout of the interior, owners of The Peak can customise their kitchen, bedroom and bathroom, while keeping the price low. It makes high-quality design achievable; it is not a privilege that people can no longer afford.

The Tiny house can use electricity, as it can be connected to the electricity grid. Also, up to 16 solar panels can be placed on the roof, making it more self-sufficient. There is also enough space for water and a compost toilet if required.

Grimshaw hopes that these houses could be the solution for young starters who struggle with the housing crisis. Homes in Australian cities are very expensive. With the tiny house movement, there could be a sort of tiny communities. "we could design new neighbourhoods around tiny houses".

Tiny Houses Around The World

Interior The Peak Tiny House

Tiny houses are trendy nowadays. Architects are working to find a solution for the housing shortage. All around the world, there are problems with housing and the micro homes could be an option to reduce this problem. In the Netherlands, you have several companies working on this problem. One of them is Ana Rocha Architecture. They created a tiny micro-home, which has 50-square-metre to live in, divided over three stories. In Slovakia, Nice Architects designed a tiny egg-shaped home. It can operate off-grid and can be used for only € 80,277.
