Everyone is talking about it, everyone wants one thing, wooden houses are all the rage, that’s obvious. They are called tiny houses, A-houses, container houses or mobile homes and are extremely successful! These ecological living spaces often give design studios ideas!

Mounted on a trailer, it can also be the ideal little house! And this design won’t stay in the studio’s boxes as it has been pre-ordered worldwide since February 2021. Available at a price of € 41,000 for 9 m², so you can become the owner of this very special home. 12 limited HOM3 houses are also in the starting blocks!
From the outside you can’t be wrong, the HOM3 house seems to come straight from the video game … A rectangular parallelepiped that takes up the typology of the dice. Inside, the mini house is quite spacious for its size. Very small area! Set up as an office, it inspires a calming and natural space conducive to teleworking.
