Dutch architecture studio Chris Collaris collaborated with interior design firm i29 Architects to create a modern ‘Tiny Holiday Home’ clad in black-stained pinewood, situated on a plot of land described by the architects as an “elongated island”.

The property is located in Vinkeveen, a town in the charming province of Utrecht, just south of Amsterdam. Vinkeveen is known for its picturesque lakes and sand islands that are used for swimming, diving and yachting. One of these sand islands is where ‘Tiny Holiday Home’ is positioned. Designed from the inside-out, the compact property makes smart use of its 55-square-meter footprint. Four interconnected structures of differing sizes surround a central patio. “Each rectangular volume has a different function”, explain the architects, “however due to the open coupling of the different volumes on the inside, a spacious and diverse living area is created in which all functions merge into one another”. The compact house is an example of a smart and comfortable design. “Small is beautiful”, the architects remark. Inside, natural oak wood panels combined with polished concrete floors and minimal furnishings, give the interior “a strong impression”. The energy efficient and eco-friendly home “still has a luxurious feel of space, and all around panoramas to the surrounding nature.”
