The wheels of each rolling hut help to elevate the structure so guests can enjoy an optimal view… Ready for a glimpse at the interior? The modern design does not disappoint. In fact these dwellings were designed by Tom Kundig of Olson Kundig Architects. Note the warm wooden details and the earthy glow of each space:
One of the striking features of the home is its extensive use of glass for the top level that gives those inside gorgeous views of snowy slopes in winter and lush green canopy in the summer months. With no beams or dividing walls being employed the vacation home has a ‘barn like’ atmosphere that is uncluttered and uncomplicated. The top floor sports the living and dining spaces that are all connected visually on one level while the bottom level of the home offers ample privacy.
Our next featured Tiny House rests on a flatbed trailer. Built by Jenine Alexander with the help of her friend Amy Hutto the space includes both upper and lower sleeping lofts as well as full trailer hook-ups for electric propane and water. The home can also nicely accommodate any solar wind or hydro power system.
We’ve had our good share of stunning houses in Canada with amazing details and mind-blowing features; but nothing compares to this contemporary residence located in a rather posh neighborhood in north Toronto.
Ready for a showpiece that will knock your socks off?! Introducing the Vail Grant House a home designed by Brooks + Scarpa Architects and built from prefabricated structural concrete insulating panels. As noted on The Daily Green these panels (SCIPS) are constructed from 60% recycled material such as wire mesh made from recycled auto parts.
Next we shine the spotlight on Paradigm a prefab home that made a splash at Greenbuild 2012 in San Francisco California. This series of homes was developed by Bogue Trondowski Architects in conjunction with Method Homes:
In another view of the living space we see a wall mirror recessed lighting and two large mineral specimens that add earthy interest: Check out the kitchen below complete with a refrigerator and a GE oven powered by propane. The dining area is tucked neatly against the window so there’s room to eat live and breathe.
