Tiny House Mobile Minimalistic Housing: The aVOID

by: Yvonne Doff
tiny house mobile minimalistic housing  the avoid | Upload

The architect, Leonardo di Chiara (27 years old), wants to bring tiny houses to big cities. He grew up in a tiny home, back in Pesaro, Italy, so he is accustomed to a minimalist lifestyle. His most recent project, the aVOID house, elevates the concept of minimalist living to a higher level.

Tiny house: Mobile Minimalistic Housing

The tiny house has a surface of 9 square meters and fully furnished with everything you need. This way, the small homes try to challenge traditional housing.

The young architect says to ABC News: "the house is on wheels so that you can take it anywhere. Live wherever you want." In the 1980s, a tiny house social and architectural movement started in the U.S. and aVOID is part of it. The movement makes a reappearance. The trend is all about a minimalistic and sustainable lifestyle, with limited resources.

Tiny House vs U.S. Homes

You can compare Di Chiara's aVOID with a Swiss Army knife. In every corner you can find furniture: tables you can flip out, or you can fold out a bed out of a closet. Di Chiara's hopes people will understand the concept and want to live minimalistic. You can skip high burdens (mortgage or rent) in big cities, such as Berlin.

aVOID Tiny City House

The architect wanted to create a home where people can live closer to the city centre. He hopes aVOID could be a part of the so-called migratory neighbourhoods (a bundle of tiny houses on wheels, integrated within the city). "It is now a work in progress", he says. "Living in a tiny home is a challenge". According to di Chiara, living in a tiny home enables him to control, test and adapt the house, and to implement it with new solutions. He refers to aVOID as an "open" prototype: a work-in-progress construction site.

In 2021 WhatsOrb will start it's Tiny House 'Convert' Project. It will be a Tiny House Park with 25 lots for tiny houses. The tiny houses are designed and developed by WhatsOrb and will have a starting price from 40.000 Euro for a standard 48 m2 unit (with reservation).

At night, the air can be too dampened, so to fix that problem, di Chiara worked with a company that provided a ventilation system. There are a lot of challenges to overcome, but still, he wants to live for a whole year in a tiny home. Once it is perfected, he wants to call it a home for life. If you like, you could try out living in a small home for a night or two. There is only one condition: give the architect feedback.

Bauhaus And aVOID

In 2016, the German architect Bo Le-Mentzel, created the Tiny house University (a non-profit organisation), together with other architects, designers and refugees. They explored different kinds of housing typologies. The aVOID home of Di Chiara was part of the small structures on the Bauhaus Museum Campus (which is included in the Tiny house University) in Berlin.

Di Chiara says they wanted to create an innovative solution for the process of living, including the design, the construction and living in the home. You will find different kinds of small houses; they are used for living, but also cafes and workspaces.

The Bauhaus design movement is an inspiration for the aVOID prototype. It is made for a single working professional. Art is combined with industrialization.

The Italian architect wants to lower the production costs so that the tiny home will be available for every owner, regardless of the income. At this moment, the materials cost around € 45.000. Di Chiara himself built and adjusted the home. Eventually, he hopes to lower the costs to € 30.000. This will only succeed if mass production is possible.

His vision? A migratory neighborhood. His mission is to present the tiny home and raise awareness of minimalistic and sustainable living in small houses.
