HOUSE IN FOREST is pleased to announce its 5th annual international design competition: House In Forest 2019 – Tiny House. The competition is designed to challenge and seek the creation of a tiny house with ideas and concepts in architectural design, as well as landscape design and site planning. The aim of this competition is to promote our ideas of protecting the forest and its environment, as well as focusing on urban design problems, while simultaneously raising awareness of the sustainability.
This year's competition focuses on tiny houses, an extraordinary architectural style with creative design methods to adjust the basic components of a house to a limited site area. Entrants are challenged to conceive a new and original concept for tiny house, however not strictly limited to the style of 'residence'. A degree of flexibility and alternative choices are allowed, for example 'portable cabin' or ' transportable home', provided it is backed up with adequate justification. The project area is defined as a 'forest area'.
Your designed tiny house has to be no more than 2 floors with a total amount of 30sq.m (320sq.ft) site plan, and has to feature four basic components: living room, bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom. The competition seeks the creation of a tiny house for one or two people to live comfortably with ideas and concepts in architectural design with site planning. Provided the site is located in a forest, possible solutions about plumbing and electricity should be figured out.
Whoever you are students or professional architects, or experienced designers, working individually or in teams, we warmly welcome you to take participate in this competition. Winning participants will receive cash prize with certificate. The total prizes are $1,000, including $500 for the first place winner. Winning projects will be posted on the official website as a competition portfolio with exhibition launched.
