Teeny Box: Prefab cabin to fight Britain’s housing crisis

Britain’s housing crisis has given many designers a motive to find a solution that is affordable and fulfills every need. Same has been done by Bert & May Group, an interior design firm based in UK, who has come up with an environmentally-friendly prefabricated portable box dubbed Teeny Box that is big enough to provide a comfortable stay to its resident.

To design spacial and portable homes, Bert & May has collaborated with Box 9 Design to offer its clients a cutting-edge design that beautifully blends with the surroundings. Teeny Box is an 82-square-feet urban unit made from blackened timber, B&M chevron tiles and has been complemented with warehouse style windows and doors. Fully insulated box is built from reclaimed material and has three side window panels to let ample light and ventilation come inside the tiny cabin.

Designed to be used as an office pod or garden bedroom, the small abode is additionally laden with green roof insulation and rainwater management to make it a self-sufficient and responsive architecture. Perfect for shoebox dwellers, the £25,000 ($38186.25) tiny home is a way to provide affordable living in urban areas.

Apart from Teeny Box, the design house has two more variants namely Little Box – a one-bedroom unit for £75,000 ($114517.12) and Big Box – a two-bedroom option for £150,000 ($229057.50) just in case you have slightly higher budget. The tiny boxes inspire people to go for small living spaces in order to solve housing problem and go green for better future.
