You Want To Escape? These Tiny Houses Are Perfect

you want to escape  these tiny houses are perfect | Upload

With COVID-19 still wreaking havoc on the tourism sector, we are increasingly looking at options that will allow for social distancing and do not involve crowded hotels, touristic hotspots, and busy city centers.

You Want To Escape? These Tiny Houses Are Perfect

While the idea of ‘plugging out’ and going off the radar has surged in popularity in the past decade, there is now - more than ever - a need for finding solitude in nature. Combine this with the trend of tiny houses, and there’s a stellar combination if you ever saw one.

Tiny houses and, in its wake, tiny hotels are a force to be reckoned with. It allows the occupant a weekend or midweek in a cute little cabin in the middle of the woods or near a desolated beach. Often devoid of internet, tv, and all otherworldly distractions - to allow someone to get in touch with nature and the people with them. Such a connection to nature has been proven to be beneficial for our mental health. Definitely worth your vacation days. If you are still unsure where to start looking for those tiny houses, here’s a couple that spring to mind.

Tiny House Escape Cube Two

A 24 m2 tiny home that is futuristic and smart - and that comes with its very own home assistant, by Canny's name. The whole thing is pre-fabricated and includes a wide range of smart home appliances, all of which report to Canny. Its limited footprint offers sufficient room for two bedrooms and a living area, housing up to 4 people.

Tiny House Escape Studio Puisto

In the illustrious Finnish woods, the Kivijärvi Resort promises a concept where several tiny houses are built in a gorgeous natural environment. This includes the so-called Niliaitta lodge, the name of which is a reference to the storage units of the indigenous Sámi people. These tiny houses include a massive, floor-to-ceiling window that offers spectacular views of the surrounding woods and lakes.

Most of the tiny houses on the terrain are built using the same principles - they are up on stilts, have homogenous shingle facades of locally sourced wood, and favor natural eco-solutions. There are even tiny houses for guests with limited mobility. These Low Grass tiny houses only have one level and are universally accessible. At the center of the terrain, the main building boasts a spectacular restaurant offering home-grown produce as well as an exhibition showroom where local artists can display their work.

Tiny House Escape The Kynttilä House

Let’s hang out in Finland for just a while longer with the Kynttilä House. This perfectly adorable, decidedly tiny-tiny house is located on the shore of Lake Saimaa. Although it only measures 15 square meters, it offers amazing views over the lake - right from your bed. It was designed by Ortraum Architects and can be found as a guest house on a complex site that also offers wall climbing, sauna, and meditation facilities. Its name ‘Kynttilä’ translates as a candle, a reference to its shape and glow and shiny wooden exterior.

Tiny House Escape The Base Cabin

The Australian-based designers of Studio Edwards came up with their minimal interpretation of a rustic house on wheels, one that they dubbed the ‘Base Cabin.’ Its exterior is bound to make some heads turn, as the intention was to make this mobile home look more like a contemporary building. It did not stop at the architectural influence alone, as the designers also drew inspiration from the iconic Airstream. The result? A cozy cabin that looks geometrically asymmetric in a sleek back color, which was obtained through the use of black rubber. It has everything you need on your travels: a bedroom, living room, bathroom, and functional kitchenette.

Tiny House Escape Edward Bed & Breakfast

A tranquil addition to the gorgeous Prince Edward County, Canada. This simple - largely plexiglass - tiny cabin was designed and built by B&B owner Payam Shalchian as an addition to the rooms he already offers. The cabin is just 7 square meters, allowing for nothing more than a large bed. And truthfully, it may be all you need - as you are surrounded by gorgeous woods that you have a nearly 360-degree view of, thanks to the transparent plexiglass used for most of its walls and roofs. To preserve some degree of privacy (although you may not even need it), a second tiny house is nearby, offering a shower and composting toilet.

Tiny House Escape City Tiny House

While this tiny house is located in Seattle's bustling city, it does its best to offer the occupant a tranquil, nature-like experience. It is located in a large garden with lush trees surrounding it, making it feel like you truly are in the wilderness. The floor-to-ceiling windows sure allow for some great views and will let you relax - even in the middle of a crowded, busy city. The Native American-accents in the interior only adds to this authentic feeling.

Tiny House Escape Bowen Island House

This time, another Canadian entry is located in a quiet 8-acre corner of the island known for its amazing rainforests. The views are second to none, with the lush canopies and quiet bay surrounding the island yours to look at from the house. This house does everything to minimize its footprint on this exceptional environment while being largely self-sufficient.

Tiny House Escape Kabëk Mountain Retreat

While most of the examples listed above are located somewhere in forests, woods, or near lakes, there is an art to creating tiny houses suitable for mountain living. The designers of Úbáli came up with their Kabëk Mountain Retreat. The inclined roof allows it to fit right in, making the experience of staying there as immersive as possible.

The retreat has all you need to go off-radar for a week or so, including a bedroom, small living room, kitchen, bathroom, and dining room. Its construction has been relatively simple, and it shows - but it is all good in the name of frugality. The one thing that has not been cut back on is the materials used, including industrial zinc, gypsum, and Densglass. These are all capable of withstanding the most extreme climates.

I'm especially interested in new Hydrogen techniques. I'm convinced that - in the near future - Hydrogen will surpass the development of solar or wind as alternative energy source. Safety concerns will find a solution and Hydrogen will be applied massively in all forms of transportation.
