Small Not Tiny is a Victoria-based business founded by designer Nick Lane and builder Aaron Shields. They started it with a mission to design homes for the contemporary Australian housing landscape, following the concept of maximum volume with a minimum footprint.
Their first project is a two-story small house that can be transported over a truck. Named The Brook, it is a display model located in Port Fairy. It takes advantage of raised ceilings to create a New York-style loft and mezzanine level.
The small home has a good-looking exterior design as well as luxurious interiors. Every aspect of this mini house is considered and well thought out to make the best use of available space.
The interior space is bathed in dark gray and wooden accents. There is a living room with sofa and glass windows, a kitchen, and a loft bedroom. Accessed through an interesting retractable ladder – which retracts into the ceiling using a galver-style wheel – is the sleeping loft designed to maximize the connection with the surrounding.
It has retractable wall panels that can be opened up for maximum natural light and panoramic views. This space even includes a creatively designed workstation.
This tiny home is designed to fit easily onto a truck trailer, giving it the versatility of a transportable tiny home. The height restrictions of transportation are also solved in a genius way by utilizing a telescopic frame for the small home.
The Brook has a 9 x 3-meter footprint, but there are also other models that can suit the size requirements of different clients. Check out more at the Small Not Tiny’s official website.
