Project: Prototype design for a modular tiny house community
Collaborators: Adam Cournoyer
Award: Awarded an Honorable Mention in the 2017 Tiny House Design Competition hosted by Volume Zero
INTERLOCK is a multi-family community of tiny houses with shared amenities, flexible site layouts, and multiple interior program modules for individual customization that can accommodate a wide range of groups and sites. INTERLOCK received an Honorable Mention in Volume Zero’s international Tiny House design competition.
Each individual 250 square foot INTERLOCK House is composed of two pre-fabricated halves that assemble to create a double-wide configuration with a flexible central open space. The edges of the unit are composed of modular inserts that allow the space to be customized for a variety of lifestyles and living arrangements.
The individual dwelling units are designed to aggregate together in a variety of ways to accommodate different site conditions and lot sizes. For this prototype design, INTERLOCK Community is designed with a shared kitchen/dining building, a laundry/lounge, gathering decks, and a community garden in conjunction with smaller scale decks and inner courtyards shared between 2-4 units.
