Our recent favorite came to us in the form of the Whimsical Shed Work Space, and now we feature another tiny, yet incredible space. Titled the Polyhedron Habitable, this small little space was designed by Colombian architect Manuel Villa located in Bogota, which happens to be the capital city of Colombia. The Polyhedron Habitable was created as a space for the parents and young children to spend some quiet bonding time. “The outcome is a Regular Polyhedron –a “Truncated Cubic-octahedron”– transformed into a inhabitable space; a self-standing volume with one of his faces opened to the surroundings, and little windows on the sides and at the top that supply day light and optimal air circulation conditions.” Our tiny home build on the west coast of Canada.
