aVOID is a fascinating tiny house developed by architect and engineer Leonardo Di Chiara. The cleverly named home was built to be sustainable and mobile while showing off the best of minimalist design principles.
You can see just from this first photo that the tiny house has some very unique features, one of which is a roof designed for reclining and relaxing!
Talk about minimalism … this is as minimalist as it gets. No wonder the house is called “aVOID.” The interior is simply a white space with furnishings and devices collapsed right into the very walls. They can be pulled out when they are needed.
For example, the interior can be transformed into a bedroom simply by pulling a bed out of the wall …
… Or it can be turned into a dining area with room for friends by unfolding a table from its hiding place.
Di Chiara is 27 years old, and is just embarking on his career as an architect. This is in fact the first structure he has built. As such, he is living in it for a one-year period during his residency. That way he can not only learn from the process of designing and constructing the tiny home, but can also further enrich his understanding of the needs of tiny house dwellers by living in his own.
The house measures just 9 square meters. That is equivalent to around 97 square feet.
The aVOID tiny house is on the road. It began its tour of Europe in Pesaro where it was manufactured, and will visit locations throughout Italy and Germany.
While the house is on tour, it will serve as an experimental residence for artists who are interested in testing out the tiny minimalist living experience. It will also be open for members of the public to tour, and will be a site for performances, live streams, exhibits and more.
Until March of this year, the aVOID tiny house was located at the Bauhaus Campus at the Bauhaus-Archive/Museum of Design in Berlin. This campus was an entire experimental community of tiny houses together with their designers and others who wanted to innovate new tiny lifestyles.
