Tiny House: Off-Grid Shelter With Walls That Open On Pulleys

On the border between Greece and Turkey, you will find a Tiny House. This Tiny Home uses a system of pulleys to raise and lower sections of the walls of this cabin. This way you could open the holiday home to the outdoors or entirely close them during the rainy season.

Cabin On The Border. Who designed it?

The Turkish architecture studio SO? designed this cabin on the border. Studio SO? created the Tiny House for a couple with a young child. The couple lives in Istanbul, but they could use an escape on the weekends. The cabin is situated in the northwest of Turkey, near the Aegean Sea. They could stay there longer in the summer, but during the entire year, it needs to be a sanctuary.

What Does It Look Like?

The cabin is only 18-square-metre and is produced at a factory, 300 kilometres from the current location. Can you get an idea of the holiday home? A laminated wooden frame, covered with stone wool insulation and birch plywood, contains a simple interior, consisting of a kitchen and a sitting area with raised beds, overlooking the garden. The cabin has tiny windows offering beautiful views of the surrounding landscape and lets daylight pour into the Tiny Home when the walls are closed.

The Interior

Inside the cabin, you will find a platform bed where you can look into a meadow via a large polycarbonate panel, which can be lifted by using a pulley. When you open the window, you will find a deck, formed by the outer plywood wall. This is a perfect way to watch the sunset. When there are bad weather conditions, you can close the plywood walls so that you can be one with nature, as a sailboat in the ocean. You can use the bed as a bench when you have dinner at the table that can be pulled down from the wall. You have sufficient storage space in the large drawers, integrated under the platform. There is enough space to sleep, and the kitchen is equipped with simple plywood elements that provide the necessary storage and worktop space. One door in the kitchen leads you to the bathroom.

Using Pulleys To Manage The Tiny Home

You use pulleys (or by hand) for everything in this cabin, as there is no source of power: using pulleys for the moving walls to have a great view, to open the windows for fresh air and daylight. And you use pulleys for all the furniture, to pull down the table from the wall, for example.

Due to the simple design and the limited range of materials, the project could be realised for only 9,800 euros, including transport.
