madeiguincho unveils its latest off-grid 'tiny house on wheels' in portugal

the tiny mobile adraga house

 

architecture and woodworking studio madeiguincho realizes this ‘adraga house’ as part of a larger series of ‘tiny houses on wheels’ across portugal. this compact timber dwelling was created for a retired couple who envisioned a more relaxed disconnection with the fast world around. the purpose for this project was to introduce a fully self-sustainable mobile unit with solar power, rainwater collection for shower and kitchen re-use and a dry toilet that closes the waste loop allowing the compost to be used in the garden beds.

madeiguincho’s lofty interiors

 

while the adraga house on wheels is indeed designed to exist anywhere, the team at madeiguincho (see more here) instilled a strong connection with its gardens. the studio founder gonçalo marrote notes that the garden beds are provided with the house and require simple assembly that integrate space for outdoor food-composting and cultivation. all the furniture and stairs in this house are designed to maximize the use of space and allow storage for a multitude of items with different sizes. even though it is small, the house fits a king size bed atop a small flight of stairs and a sofa bed below, allowing four people to sleep and live comfortably.

 

inside the adraga house, madeiguincho includes a refrigerator, a cooking stove, and a handmade portuguese-stone sink. with its lofty, double-height living area, the interiors suggest that the tiny house is much bigger than it appears.
