Sustainable hybrid timber-frame Mini Home with playful design

Sustainable hybrid timber-frame Mini Home with playful design (1)

This lovely two-room cottage has an adventurous and playful design. The sustainable cottage was designed by Nir Pearlson Architects, architecture studio based in Eugene, Oregon, United States. Nir Pearlson designed the house to be energy-wise, with rigid foam insulation in walls and roof and separate photovoltaic arrays for generating electricity and hot water.

Description by Nir Pearlson: This sustainable hybrid timber-frame Mini Home combines cozy spaces with an expansive character. The interiors weave into the surrounding garden, and the home celebrates the cycle of seasons. The front porch transitions gracefully via a slate-floor entryway into the central space where the living, dining, and cooking areas overlap and interact.

This great room expands to a study / guest room, and opens onto the partly-sheltered deck overlooking the garden. A centrally located wood stove anchors the room, and an altar peacefully delineates the passage into the private zone: a master bedroom and a light-filled bathroom. Exposed wood structure and trim frame the naturally-dyed plaster walls. For more information visit Nir Pearlson Architects
