The XXS Next House is a tiny structure that’s been designed to cater for a variety of different functions, either as a standalone space or as an extension to an existing home. The contemporary structure is a reinterpretation of the traditional garden shed by architect Magnus Ståhl.
The XXS Next House is just 15 square meters (161 square feet) in size. As always with small spaces and structures, the exterior environment usually plays a part in the design. Next House is no different; it comes with a 10 square meter (108 square foot) decking area, allowing you to make the most of your surroundings.
The exterior of the features a black stained, timber clad façade and a large sliding patio door that acts as the entrance. It looks like the structure has a flat roof that’s been finished with some sort of EPDM to ensure it’s water-tight. The internal floor-to-ceiling height is just 2.7 meters (8.8 foot) and the exterior height is probably around 3 meters (9.8 feet), making it suitable to be transported by a truck.
The house arrives as a shell, and after that it’s up to you to finish the interior space as you see fit. Some people, as seen above and below, have decided to use the pod as a micro retreat, kitted out with a small kitchen and a dining area. Others have adopted the structure for use as a rather luxurious looking shower and sauna.
The cost for an XXS Next House ranges from 6,500 to 7,800 Euro ($8,770 – $10,500). Before you go and start dreaming of your own little Next House, it appears they were involved in some sort of scam and the company that produced the houses is no longer operating.
