Portal Our site has already described in detail the features of Tiny House, tiny mobile homes. This time we decided to give you a prime example of such a travel home, first built entirely in Italy. Let’s see what features the house, called aVOID, has.
AVOID was designed by the young Italian architect Leonardo Di Chiara. After graduating from university, he decided to see the world, and in order to make it easier for himself and not rent an apartment every time in a new city, he created a mobile home with an area of only 9 square meters – 5.10 meters long, 2.53 meters wide and 4 meters high.
Outwardly, the house looks normal. There are no windows on the side, long walls to ensure privacy. But the back wall is glass, there is a glass door in the front. In addition, natural light is provided by windows on the triangular roof, which can become an area for sunbathing..
The aVOID was built of wood, the interior is also made of wood and plywood which is resistant to mold and moisture. Even the tiny bathroom at the front of the house is completely finished in wood. The mixer and the mirror “disappear” if necessary, and the toilet works on the principle of composting, there is a water purification system. The shower is also eco-friendly, there are two 60-liter tanks – for clean water and used water..
At first glance, the main living room appears to be empty, but there is a large amount of furniture hidden in the walls, which is taken out when necessary. According to the architect, this was his principled approach – so that the interior could be easily modified..
All the details of the tiny house were calculated to the millimeter, including folding chairs made of birch plywood. The sleeping area comes out of the wall, the mattress is in two parts, so the bed can be for one person or for two.
The kitchen is also hidden, with an induction hob, a small refrigerator and a wooden lid on the sink that doubles as a cutting board and work surface. A fold-out table allows you to receive guests. Interestingly, the compartment above the kitchen serves as a mini-greenhouse for greenery and herbs, it is illuminated by a window on the roof.
Leonardo Di Chiara is now offering to test his home, which has already taken part in the Tinyhouse University exhibition in Berlin, to everyone. According to the architect, he needs live feedback to continue working on mobile, self-sufficient homes. The price of aVOID turned out to be high – 45 thousand euros. However, this is exactly the first such mobile home, a sample. In the case of launching industrial production, the cost will be significantly lower.
