In this project in the canton of Aargau, ten tiny houses are moving beyond their traditional definition. They combine the advantages of sustainable, compact construction with upscale home comfort.
The processed solid wood is visible even on the inside and brings nature into the living space. The large, in-built window façades also offer a direct connection with the surrounding environment. Care was taken to source regional materials for the construction. This made it possible to reduce the ecological footprint further while guaranteeing quality.
