Exploring the Intriguing World of Modern Tiny Houses: Leveraging AI's Potential

Tiny houses have always piqued my interest due to their clever use of space and ability to provide all necessary amenities in a compact design. The allure of these small houses, combined with my appreciation for modern and eccentric architecture, inspired me to embark on a journey to design one-of-a-kind houses. While most online examples of tiny houses are traditional or minimalist in style, I sought inspiration from cutting-edge AI technologies to create unique modern tiny house designs. In this blog post, I'll talk about my experience with Stable Diffusion and Wombo Dream, two incredible AI tools, and show off the stunning results they produced.

The Appeal of Tiny Houses

Tiny houses have an inherently appealing quality. Their innovative designs call into question the notion that living spaces must be large in order to be comfortable. Instead, they encourage ingenuity and resourcefulness while maximizing every square foot to provide functional and efficient living spaces. The appeal for me is in the way these small homes manage to create a sense of coziness and contentment while still providing all of the necessary amenities. Tiny houses embody the art of space optimization, from cozy lofts to multi-purpose furniture.

4³ - Tiny Farm Staff House

The first design problem given to me back in college was a cube house. We were allowed to solve the problem in any way as long as we were limited to 4 m x 4 m x 4 m. I had no experience designing back then, and I had no background in standards and minimum requirements. I had to research it all within a week, and this during the pre-internet days. I had to do my research in the library and jot down all the information I gather.

Another method I did to gather data was to measure the spaces in my house, which allowed me to experience the actual dimensions. This experience made me realize the complexity of designing small spaces. I had some difficulty arranging all the essential amenities in the limited area. It took me several schemes before coming up with a design.

Micro Compact Home: An Efficient Use of Space

Tiny living spaces have always been of interest to me. It always astounds me how a well-designed small space can still offer comfort to the user. There is one project that is an excellent example of the quality of tiny homes. The Micro Compact Home (m-ch), designed by Richard Horden, has introduced me to well-designed tiny homes. 
The project led by Architect Richard Horden was a collaboration between student teams at the Technical University, TIT Tokyo, and Haak and Hopfner Architects. The team designed in 2005 for short stay accommodation for students and business use.
