The tiny House Arc prototype is the creation of Joseph Bellomo Architects. This tiny prefab house can be flat packed requiring space of just 4x10x3 feet, and is created in a way that would be easy to assemble for a normal person.
Intention of the architects was to create something similar to an “IKEA house, only easier to put together.” Though it can be flat packed into those small dimensions, the house has 150 square feet of space and weighs 3000 pounds. House arc has a lightweight frame made of steel tubes, but also employs some concrete blocks.
When completed, the house is expected to withstand tropical winds and weather. Going by the renderings we see, the roof of the house has solar panels so it would be able to generate a good part of the juice it would require.
The prototype is intended for a client in Hawaii, though the architects are also looking for sponsors to send these homes to Haiti.
