Tiny house inspiration sometimes comes from the most unusual sources. As it turns out, the company behind our Barcelona aparthotel, Erik Vökel, has a pretty great blog. They recently profiled the award-winning portable home by Spanish design studio Ábaton – The ÁPH80.
I feel like Spanish design flies a bit under the radar, but there were loads of drool-worthy design stores in Barcelona. I would generally describe their aesthetic as contemporary warmth. Clean lines are common, as are natural materials. They combine to create a homey feel without a lot of clutter, which is perfect for small house living.
This home leans more to the rustic side. I think it would be perfect perched on a little plot of land overlooking the ocean. Roll it in…
Open her up…
It’s definitely compact, but plenty of shelter and cooking space for a weekend getaway.
RF’s probably wondering where we’d put the tv, but we often end up watching movies on our laptop when we’re away.
Wonder if you could pop a mini-split into that end wall? I don’t see much in the way of heating/cooling.
I would definitely maximize the surrounding outdoor space with some reclining lounge chairs to one side and Adirondacks around a fire pit to the other.
And yes, please throw in a herd of sheep!!
