Tiny House

Tiny Escape

Delve, Northern Germany, Germany

The fan base of the Tiny Houses is growing worldwide. The small houses are clear, cozy and offer everything you need. Their space-optimized approach offers the opportunity to concentrate on the essential things in life - without ballast from superfluous luxury goods.

With her tiny escapes, Sophie Müller wants to make small escapes from everyday life possible. From Hamburg you are in Delve in 90 minutes and immediately in a holiday mood. Because the house is on the edge of a campsite in the middle of Schleswig Holstein's largest contiguous river landscape in Delve. You can quickly forget everyday life right on the edge of the field and only 50 meters from the small river Eider.

The mini-house jacked up on a hanger sees itself as a medium for experiencing nature. Little in it should disturb or distract, so it is minimalist, straightforward, without being uncomfortable. The light rustling of the trees from the outside creates a pleasant atmosphere. Through the panoramic window and two further floor-to-ceiling windows in the kitchen, the house is very bright and lets the green of the surroundings shimmer in many places. At the same time, there are also areas in which you can retreat so that you don't have to feel exposed. From the spacious roof windows in the sleeping lodge you can see the clouds passing by and watch the swaying tree tops. When you wake up at night, you see the sparkling starry sky, as clear as you can only see it in the country.

The colors inside are bright and natural, so the green surroundings extend into the house. Cushions and blankets made of comfortable materials create colorful accents and balance with the clear shapes of the house and the objects in it. Everything looks very tidy and light. There is no unnecessary decoration, instead plants delight the eye. The interior is modern, Scandinavian.

The hobbit wood stove creates a pleasant warmth and bathes the living room in a soothing shade of yellow in the evening. The wood, which is partly stored in the house, smells pleasant, slightly foresty. In the kitchen corner or on the grill you can prepare your own delicacies.

This is about digital detox. Leave the cell phone at home and walk away the worries along the Eider. There are miles of hiking and biking trails in the area. In 50 minutes by car you are in Sankt Peter Ording and can be blown through there.

ArchitectureTiny houses are characterized by a well-thought-out floor plan, in which every centimeter of space is used optimally, without this being recognizable at first glance. From the outside, the classic house shape is immediately noticeable. The pointed roof takes up space on the inside, but conveys a more cozy feeling of space than flat roofs. The particularly resistant and thus sustainable roof was extended downwards on the sides of the house, so that less wood had to be used for the external cladding. Tiny Escape is built on a trailer and measures 2.55 x 6 meters. The floor plan is designed so that - although in principle it is only a large room - separations can be seen. The living room is 10cm lower than the kitchen and the rest. This step optically separates the room. The sleeping loge upstairs is reached via a narrow staircase corridor. Compared to other small buildings, no ladder was deliberately chosen, because otherwise it would not be possible to take a drink or similar upstairs.

EnvironmentDue to the miniature design and the placement on the hanger, hardly any soil sealing takes place. All woods used come from sustainable cultivation. The colors used are also particularly environmentally friendly. Because of the small size, the energy requirement is generally lower than in conventional holiday homes. Cooking is done on an induction cooker. Since Tiny Escape wants to convey the minimalist lifestyle, there are no other electrical household appliances apart from an electric heater. The espresso machine requires little water to rinse and no electricity. The toilet is a dry toilet and does not require water.

The materials used are all vegan, so no eiderdowns, leather or sheep wool were used.

The garbage is separated by the cleaning team. Mainly ecological cleaning agents are used.
