The Estonian architecture firm Koda, which has branch offices in Europe and Canada, now concentrates the majority of its production and sales on the so-called Koda Loft: a tiny house in an elegant loft style. The Koda Loft is already available in Germany.
With the steel-reinforced wooden frame of the loft, according to Koda, the Tiny House is not only particularly light, but also environmentally friendly. At around eleven tons, the wooden floor is half as heavy as that of the Koda Concrete – another concrete house designed by Koda.
Koda is already trying to expand beyond the sale of individual loft units. The company would like to combine several Koda Lofts into a whole Koda Park, which could function as a community facility, shopping center, village or business center.
This is how the Koda looks

The Koda Loft can be transported in one piece on a trailer. A crane is required to position the house.
When placing the loft, some requirements must be met.
The building has to be on a level plot that can support the weight of the house.
The house must be connected to water, electricity and sewage points.
Apart from that, installing the Koda Loft only takes a day.
Exterior color and interior can be customized according to customer requirements.
On the outer wall of the house there is a ladder that drains rainwater, an open mailbox and a bicycle holder.
There is a small terrace connected to the house that invites you to relax outdoors.
Overall, the tiny house covers almost 29 square meters, which according to Koda corresponds to a “usable floor space” of almost 27 square meters.
The interior of the open-plan house has veneered ceilings and walls and laminate floors.
The wool-insulated house withstands all four seasons.
To keep the house warm in winter, the floors in the living room, bathroom and kitchen can be heated electrically.
The house is equipped with a ventilation system and Koda used lighter colors for the interior to prevent the house from overheating in direct sunlight.
The windows in the kitchen and in the bedroom above can be opened to let in fresh air.
According to Koda, the house conveys a “Nordic flair”.
Apart from the mobility and the minimalist living concept, the Koda Loft doesn’t differ much from a normal home.
For example, there is a fully equipped kitchen with a sink, fridge, induction hob …
… large storage space and several cupboards for storage.
An extractor hood, a dishwasher and a washing machine are optionally available.
The Tiny House also includes a dining table, which is located at the end of the kitchen next to the living room.
The bathroom is equipped with a toilet, sink and shower.
Warm water is generated via a water boiler.
On the back there are large windows that let natural light into the house.
At night, LED lights illuminate the tiny house.
According to KODA, the loft is versatile.
The Koda Loft can not only serve as a home, but can also be converted into an office, café, shop or coworking space.
