HUS-1 is a 270 square foot tiny house designed and built by Swedish architect Torsten Ottesjö on the Swedish West coast.

“Nestled in a valley far from urban linearity, it aims to provide an optimal living environment.”

Hus-1 by Torsten Ottesjö:

“Hus 1 is an inspiring new house designed and built by Torsten Ottesjö. With double curved surfaces, compact and efficient planning it is a house on the human scale that blends effortlessly into the surrounding nature.

Situated in the unique cultural landscape of the Scandinavian West Coast, Hus 1 reflects and communicates with its surroundings. The natural materials used in the construction have made it a friendly place for both humans and nature for its whole life cycle.

Hus 1 regularly houses two people all year round but visiting friends always have room. Kitchen, sleeping quarters, dinner table, hallway and other functions are well integrated on just 25 square metres of living space.”
