SUSTAINABLE-TINY-HOME__2-1920X1080.jpg Off the Grid - Can you design a tiny house

INTRODUCTION
Tiny house: an eco-friendly housing solution.
Our lives are dependent on the systems that complete our housing requirements, what happens if these grid systems fail? The sustainable approach to housing is important for human survival. Can we design our dream home within the limit of 37sq.m. and off the grid? With spaces that fulfill all the basic functioning of the house most innovatively and effectively. Explore your capacity to come up with ideas that can fit within the limited space, mainly focusing on sustainability.
