French firm Baluchon’s latest tiny house embraces a modern, contemporary look. The towable home features a light-filled living area and a simple, space-saving layout that helps to maximize the limited floorspace available.



While French firm Baluchon’s previous tiny house recalled the small living movement’s roots with a traditional tiny home, its latest model goes in the opposite direction and embraces a more contemporary look. The towable dwelling features a modern, light-filled living area and a space-saving layout that maximizes the limited floorspace available.

The Piccola Casa (or Small House) measures 6 m (19.6 ft) in length, and is finished in cedar and black aluminum. It’s based on a double-axle trailer and the upper area of the tiny house that hosts the bedroom juts out slightly, helping underline the modern aesthetic Baluchon is going for.

Visitors enter the home into the living room, which looks pleasantly light-filled thanks to the generous glazing. It includes a bench seat with integrated storage space that doubles as a guest bed, as well as some shelving and an electric radiator.

The kitchen is nearby and contains a small dining table with stool seating for two, a two-burner propane-powered stove, an oven, a sink, and a fridge, plus some cabinetry and shelving. The bathroom, meanwhile, is at the opposite end of the tiny house to the living room and is accessed by a small sliding door. It has a shower, sink, and toilet.
