Bali-based Stilt Studios has begun construction on a new prefabricated tiny house made out of recycled Tetra Pak cartons. The team has also launched a Kickstarter campaign to create awareness for the use of recycled materials. Designed to promote local, circular economies, the first prototype is now being built and sales of the tiny house will commence in October this year. As outlined by the team, the Tiny Tetra House is a 64sqm home with all living amenities elevated 40cm off the ground built using wood, glass and recycled materials. The architecture makes use of the recycled materials' reflective characteristics, while strategically placed openings carefully frame view corridors. “At Stilt Studios we believe we have the responsibility for both creating unique designs and reducing the environmental impact of our buildings. How about if we could not only reduce total material used and the footprint, but be a part of the circular economy by the choice of material used” says Alexis Dornier, co-founder and Chief Designer at Stilt Studios. The design includes a bedroom, en-suite bathroom, open kitchen, and living room, as well as outdoor terraces.
