[VIDEO] The Little Lodge That Follows The Sun

A Total Winner IMO…

 

The little rotating shed by Path Architecture in Portland is a total winner in its versatility and uniqueness, especially since it’s designed to actually rotate to follow the sun.  It’s a small 12×12 space, yet spacious, so prepare yourself to be impressed with the interior as well.  The little house is called 359 (since it doesn’t turn the full 360 degrees), and it utilizes solar energy that makes it energy efficient and sustainable too.  Enjoy the photos, and be sure to watch the video on page 2 !

 

Now, Portland Oregon’s Path Architecture has built 359, a bigger shed that does much the same thing; it is 12 feet by 12 feet and has it all. Compared to the 8′-6″ of your standard tiny house, it is really roomy inside. This built version is tied to city services with a flush toilet, the waste going through a rotating coupling used in the natural gas industry that is in the dead center of the turntable. Electricity and water connections are the reason it only turns 359 degrees, so that they don’t get all twisted up. Avoid the sun on the hottest days and capture it on the coldest. And it looks like a lot of fun.
