Today we're featuring an amazing tiny house that is a modern version of a traditional Danish allotment hut. Back in the day, allotment huts were owned by people living in apartments who didn't have a garden, and who could then use the allotment to grow fruit and vegetables, and to enjoy the fresh air. The house is 236 sq ft, and every square feet is used for a purpose, with many design details. It was build 9 years ago by Karen Jelnes and her husband before they had children; after they had kids they build bunk beds on top of their own bed, which is a really clever solution. The house is really beautiful and unique, and they build it small on purpose to make more space in the garden to grow vegetables, berries and fruit that the whole family can enjoy!

Aimed at a growing group of “global nomads”, Amsterdam’s Zoku is trying to avoid the hotel label and instead provide a home/office for their not-guests-but-“neighbors”. Each 25m2 (269 ft2) micro-apartment has a lofted bed, enclosed by slatted wooden doors and accessed by a retractable staircase so it can be closed off when entertaining or hosting meetings. There is an under-bed desk, a kitchen and even a ceiling-mounted gymnast’s hoops for in-room exercise. “We used basically every cubic centimeter of the loft,” explains Zoku co-founder Marc Jongerius. “We spent 5 to 6 years really getting all the details right. We started by doing 150 interviews with people from the target audience. The research that we did we hear from them that if they stay in a self-catered apartment they lack the social space, they lack contact with people. This is what we created upstairs.” Upstairs you can borrow musical instruments, CNC print, play ping pong, work at long, shared desks or reconfigurable conference rooms (titled “Not a Bored Room”) or eat at communal tables. “Zoku is a Japanese word it means family, tribe or clan” explains Jongerius. “I think we're one of the first hotels in the world to have a community manager on the payroll and their only job is to connect residents.” Zoku has also partnered with WeWork in their Amsterdam space for those looking for more formal work spaces. https://livezoku.com/zoku-loft/
Russian architect Peter Kostelov and his artist wife, Olga Feshina, wanted private rooms to work from home in their aging New York City apartment so they tore down the interior walls and rebuilt the 700-square-foot space with not just a living room, kitchen, bathroom and master bedroom, but two flex spaces which serve for work and guests (via slide-out beds). With the help of Kostelov’s carpenter father Vladimir (who flew in from Russia to help) they used plywood to craft sliding tables, benches and beds, as well as cabinets, closets and some walls and ceiling finishes. “This is the biggest advantage of plywood: you can make shapes that are custom made… this is how you can save your budget and use as much space as you can." In Peter’s office- a plywood-covered cocoon-, he raised the bed to leave room for a table to slide underneath from the adjacent living room. Crafted from just one four-by-eight piece of plywood, it slides out of the wall and can be adjusted to serve as a table-for-two, dining for 12, a drafting space (for Peter) and fabric-cutting surface (for Olia). The matching plywood benches slide out to match and open for horizontal storage. In the kitchen, there’s a breakfast table that folds down from the brick wall, as well as two plywood cantilevered stools that appear fragile, but hold up to 330 pounds (thanks to the yacht hardware and long anchor pins).

A month ago we visited this cool tiny studio apartment in Amsterdam. This space is called Zoku, and it is a huge building with more than 100 small apartments for tiny living, and this is what they look like.
They are designed for online nomads, and people who travel frequently, to have a micro apartment space to dwell inside the city center of Amsterdam. It's connected to a shared office space / co-working space in the heart of Amsterdam, to make it easy to network and work during the stay. These tiny apartments can be rented short or long-term, making them the perfect substitute to hotel rooms.
The architects and idea people behind this concept really thought this design through. The whole idea of the sliding staircase that leads up to the loft space is just genius.
You find everything you need from a tiny bathroom / toilet, kitchen, dining area and a sleeping loft, you can access from the sliding staircase. The loft part of the apartment doesn't seem like it's there when the blinds are closed.
