Small Change organises and sponsors an annual student design competition 'small home BIG LIFE' to inspire the next generation of designers and builders to build smaller and more sustainable homes.
This customised Nano was built in collaboration with our Queensland builder as a secondary dwelling for extended family living.
This Nano is a 2 bedroom home of approximately 76m2 with a 40m2 footprint on the ground, making it ideal for very small lots or as a secondary dwelling. It has an open plan living/dining/kitchen area on the ground floor with a small walk in pantry/laundry combo that fits cleverly under the stairs.
An undercover deck off the living area makes the most of the views and pleasant Brisbane climate. Upstairs, Nano has a main bedroom with a large robe. The small second bedroom is ideal as a study, guest or children’s bedroom.
A generous bathroom decked out with beautiful tiles and an oversized shower gives this little house a luxury feel while the raked ceilings upstairs make Nano feel a lot bigger than it is.
