New experiences and connections are two of the most important basics of life, and designing a dream is nothing short of giving way to this opportunity. Such ways being for cultural, social and environmental daily activities. Setting them into motion requires overcoming expectations and going beyond a boring and mundane life to open up to an adventurous, free and brave one. Based on that, when it comes to the concept of tiny houses, one could potentially build their own anywhere they wish to, alongside there being a few things that need to be taken into consideration, such as, for example, the existence of specific places for the restocking and disposal of water and waste, electrical features, natural lighting, proper ventilation, differentiated biomes, etc. Another of this project's themes is to adapt itself to the environment, be it external or internal, as the saying goes: "Neither snow nor rain...". The house of our dreams will adjust itself to the daily needs of the user, basing itself on sustainability and technology, coupled with several mechanisms designed to help in that process, such as specially located windows, thus providing natural and pleasant cross ventilation in hot environments. There is also a climate control system and thermal materials made specifically to heat up and bring comfort to extreme environments.
To make longer journeys possible there are resources such as dry toilets which do not only contribute to the environment through lessening contamination and making it possible to turn waste into fertilizer, but also making room for a bigger water storage space alongside a, located on the roof of the, hydraulic system composed of water tanks with thermal systems. For water heating and as a generalized source of energy there are solar panels, also located on the roof of the project. We set the environment up with versatile and integrated furniture, which are able to support personal and professional life alongside leisurely and relaxing occasions. Our philosophy is subtly imposed and can be found in the details of the environments aimed at spending leisure time with our loved ones. This project was built from putting together the dreams and hopes of 5 young architects. But then, why stop with us, when this space could also be other people's dream which also sympathizes with mobility, comfort, freedom, autonomy and connectivity, which is why we want to show it to the world so that we may reach and touch more hearts.
