Check out this tiny modern house… on water!

Think you’re cut out for modern tiny house living?

The team who created KODA, a pre-fabricated moveable house have risen to the challenge of creating a tiny home that works to solve many of the growing problems in our urban environment.

With increasing demands for smaller dwellings in cities and growing concerns around waste created by the construction industry, KODA Head architect and co-founder Ülar Mark set out to design a small, sustainable mobile home that can easily be placed anywhere.

“KODA simply and dynamically creates order in the chaotic pre-existing, but outdated rigidity of the construction industry and as a way of living.”

Birgit Linnamäe, KODA CEO

“The original idea at the early stages of Kodasema was to stop wasting energy and start reducing the energy consumption also in the construction industry,” says KODA founder Hannes Tamjärv. “Small living spaces often automatically mean less energy is required leaving a smaller footprint. These ideas eventually resulted in the KODA.”

Taking the idea one step further is KODA Light Float – a waterfront house on pontoons, attached to the shore.

Ultra-modern in design and minimal in execution, the trim interior is so well executed you’d forget you were on a houseboat, save for the quiet lapping of waves against the hull. The 25.8 square metre structure is prefabricated and takes around three months to produce.

The timber pontoon base produced by TopMarine surrounds the entire home and serves as a neat outdoor terrace area.

The fully insulated interior has a sleek plywood design featuring high ceilings and fully customisable finishes with optional materials including timber and zinc cladding.

An open plan living room and kitchen flows to a full-size sleeping area and bathroom with toilet. “KODA is an aesthetically pleasing source of space, time, energy and values for individuals and businesses of all kinds,” says KODA CEO Birgit Linnamäe.
