Integrated lighting combined with floor to ceiling windows brighten up the warm maple-clad interior, highlighting a surprisingly spacious feel. Designed by native Icelanders Erla Dögg Ingjaldsdóttir and Tryggvi Thorsteinsson, the Tiny House Plús Hús is inspired by the austere yet stunning landscapes of fire and ice– in line with the emblematic Minarc sensibility.

The twin-size sleeping nook bursts with a stunning lighting system hidden behind seamless maple panels, for a cozy and intimate sanctum. Mirroring the bedroom, the bathroom complements the warmth with a stark lava rock and glacial-white theme.

In line with energy efficient appliances, the Tiny House Plús Hús features RUBBiSH, a Minarc designed sink fitted with a recycled rubber basin.

Everything you need, and nothing more, the Plús Hús Tiny House is a practice on elegant restraint, with room for play.
