A45는 뉴욕 주 북부에 건설된 최초의 프로토타입 주택으로 향후 주택의 소유자가 어떤 목적으로 사용하든지간에, 집 구입 후 4-6 개월 내에 맞춤형으로 구성할 있도록 내부 및 외부 사용자 정의가 가능한 컨셉이다. 디자인은 투명한 옥상과 각진 벽으로 고전적인 형태이지만, 이 구조물의 특성을 극대화 하기 위해 정사각형 기초를 잡은 뒤 지붕을 45도 비틀어 작은 집을 13피트 높이로 높일 경우 더 많은 바닥 면적을 형성할 수 있다.
A45 is the first prototype constructed in upstate New York and will be customizable inside and out for future home-owners to purchase, tailor and have the tiny house built within 4-6 months in any location, for any purpose.
The design evolves from the traditional A-frame cabin, known for its pitched roof and angled walls which allow for easy rain run-off and simple construction. To maximize the qualities of this classic structure, A45 creates more usable floor area by taking a square base and twisting the roof 45 degrees to raise the tiny home to a soaring 13 ft height. The resulting crystal-like shape gives A45 an ever-changing appearance. Upon entering, the 180 sqft interior space reflects a minimal Nordic abode prioritized for ‘hyggelig’ comfort and design. From the exposed timber frame in solid pine, the Douglas Fir floor and customizable space-grade, insulating natural cork walls, A45 brings nature inside. An elegant Morsøe wood-burning fireplace is nestled in one corner while off-the-grid equipment is tucked away in the back. A petite kitchen designed by Københavns Møbelsnedkeri, hand-crafted furniture from Carl Hansen and a bed fitted with Kvadrat fabric designed by Soren Rose Studio are some of the handcrafted Nordic furniture to adorn A45. The bathroom is made of cedar wood with fixtures by VOLA. A45 is assembled in modules on site and consists of 100% recyclable materials including the timber frame, wall modules, a subfloor and the triangular floor-to-ceiling window featuring seven glass pieces that allow natural daylight to illuminate the interiors. The structure is slightly elevated by four concrete piers to give optimal support and allow homeowners to place their tiny house in even the most remote areas without the use of heavy machinery.
