Extravagant Outdoor Design Idea – A Tiny Livable and Functional House

A tiny functional and liveable house. Here’s an extravagant outdoor design idea for your backyard or even to base your home in. Through the 1960s and the 1970s, several designers, architects and engineers from American and Europe became preoccupied with creating tiny liveable houses made of plastic.

The general idea of this concept was to explore the building and design possibilities of plastic, a lightweight material that’s easily molded and that has a strong resistance to natural elements. By making this concept a reality, this generation of artists intended to develop a new market segment within the housing industry, because those tiny functional houses could easily serve as a vacation home or, in a more extreme case, could also be used as a family home.

This idea never really took off. Even though tiny house eventually become a thing, mainly for storage or decoration purposes, the idea of creating liveable tiny houses of plastic was abandoned. Even though the concept creations develop by that generation of creators and artists never reached the market or were mass produced, some of them stood the test of time and are now fantastic works of art.

Of course, nowadays they are only marketable as sculptures/ pieces of art and, to be perfectly honest, I think they are the perfect outdoor design idea for any big backyard that deserves some sort of lounge or parlor. These tiny houses are functional, extravagant, creative and extremely interesting. Just the things you look for if you are searching for a clever way to enhance your backyard and gain some housing space. But can you imagine having a house as an art piece?
