Red Kite, Dorset
One of a series of sustainable modular Pyramid Cabins Red Kite comprises 5 modules plus an exterior porch, and was designed as a full time dwelling for a couple whilst they established their new farm. Now a rental property, visitors can enjoy Red Kite's sustainable on-grid design for themselves and experience elegant and beautifully detailed small scale living.
An open plan space with full size fully fitted kitchen, dining space and sitting room with log burner are at the heart of the building. Around it sit the private spaces - the bathroom with rainhead shower and bath with a ribbon window and a relaxing view across the countryside; and a double bedroom. The front hall is entered from the covered porch. Beautifully crafted wall units, a walk-in wardrobe in the bedroom, and a floor to ceiling concealed storage wall in the entrance hall provide clever discreet solutions for extra storage in the home. Although under 30m2 internally, the generous windows and five top lit light wells fill the space with daylight and give the home a spacious feel,; this is certainly no ersatz tiny house .
