DESIGNED TO MAKE LIVING EASY, SO YOU CAN FOCUS ON WHAT MATTERS
The 5x5 House is built to accommodate the quotidian, basic aspects of life so you don't have to. From things like lowering the front entry, so dirt naturally is trapped there, or ample storage wherever you turn, to individual spaces with the home that provide moments of privacy, and places of autonomous control that may just take the edge off of small conflicts so they never metastasize. All of this is built into a small footprint, without sacrificing aesthetics or the simplicity of construction. Click on the plan below to read more.
If the plan looks natural and composed, it wasn't always that way. Below is the original sketch, which got so worked over the tooth was completely worn off the paper and it could not be drawn on any further. Packing all the necessary components into the 5x5 House required an analysis of precise dimensions and clearances in order to make sure there were no afterthoughts or compromises. Everything fits, just right.
