COMFORTABLY COMPACT

HERE’S A TINY HOME THAT GETS AWAY WITH NOT USING TRANSFORMABLE FURNITURE

Oftentimes, you can’t really separate multi-functional furniture from the tiny house. Yet somehow this roughly 150-square-foot home in Lithuania still manages to have everything you need and still be comfortable.

The Etno Hut’s main feature is its incredibly low impact on the environment. It’s designed to be as small as possible while still maintaining a degree of comfortable living space. It’s actually enough to meet the needs of at least two people with a pet. The location of the hut features beautiful panoramic views of the lush green landscapes. The wide windows and the large glass door by the balcony take advantage of these views while providing a healthy helping of natural light.

Amazing part here is the absence of multifunctional furniture in the incorporated into the Etno Hut’s design. Such furniture, according to the architecture studio, would only needlessly complicate the small space. The end result is a minimalistic and simplistic design which creates a sort of haven where people can truly unwind and decompress.

“The primary idea was to design a house that would be as small as possible,” explains lead architect Ema Butrimaviciute, “and at the same time could meet all the basic needs of two people, and maybe a dog.” The result is a compact dark wood cabin that stands on stilts that stands halfway between two major cities in Lithuania.
