The ProtoHaus is an exquisitely clean, modern, minimalistic tiny cabin that was built with emphasis on functionality, sustainability, and obviously, aesthetics. The beautiful 125 square foot home in Longmont, Colorado was constructed on a flatbed trailer for portability and is made primarily from reclaimed and recycled materials. The home combines artistic form and function in one environmentally-friendly living space.
Besides being constructed from mostly recycled materials, the ProtoHaus was built with sustainability in mind and is fully capable of being off the grid. It has fresh, grey, and black water systems integrated into the design, a composting toilet in the bathroom, and wind and solar power systems.
The beautifully modern interior packs a lot into the small square footage of the home, but creative storage spaces make it appear clean and simple as opposed to cluttered. It is complete with all the necessary amenities for very comfortable living.
The gas stove sits in a little nook with a window, surrounded by storage shelves.
A loft serves as the sleeping quarters with a cozy bed surrounded by dormer windows that add vertical space to the area.
In the interest of exploring the boundaries that define art objects, non-art objects, and social issues related to home ownership, ProtoHaus will challenge viewer, artist and artwork.
