The house allows a view of the great outdoors | Hobbies


The Lauderdale is a vacation home designed to take full advantage of panoramic views. Built on a beach or lakefront lot, this tiny home allows you to continue enjoying the outdoors even when you need to get inside.

Stacks of glass fill most of the wall space on three sides of the great vaulted hall. Sliding patio doors on two sides provide cross ventilation and open to a cool sculptural colonnade that surrounds this spectacular living room.

A large fireplace separates the great room from the dining room and serves as a warm focal point on cold days. The ceiling in front of the fireplace is higher than the rest of the Great Hall – two full floors. The fireplace can be overlooked from vantage points on either side of the wide fireplace that extends upward past the second story attic. Equipped with bunk beds, the loft can provide additional sleeping space, if required.

The U-shaped kitchen is lit by a picture window and has plenty of counter space. A compact stacked washer / dryer combination is tucked away in an alcove under the stairs. Sliding doors open onto a small rear patio shaded by a wooden arbor. This area could be screened, if you wish.

The downstairs and upstairs bedrooms have bathrooms and walk-in closets. The Lauderdale’s upper bathroom is slightly larger and has a corner shower. The compartmentalized lower bathroom allows one person to perform pelvic-level grooming activities while another uses the tub or toilet in privacy.
