A rather bizarre experiment in minimal living, the Tikku is a full fledged home that fits into the space occupied by one car. Meaning ‘stick’ in Finnish, the Tikku is made using Cross-laminated Timber, can be assembled overnight, comes with 3 floors, and can go where any car can.
Showcased at the Helsinki Design Week, Tikku aims at showing that our footprint as an individual really doesn’t need to be that big. The apartment occupies just 2.5 X 5 meters of space, comes with its own solar panels to harvest energy, and a dry toilet that works without water. Simple modules allow you to choose the kind of Tikku you want to build. You can choose between different modules to convert parts of your home into an office, shop, kitchen, sauna, dojo, workshop, or even a hotel-room! Plus, with how expensive rent is, living in Tikku might just work out cheaper!
