The Tiny Homes Community is a collection of houses specifically designed for young adults aged 16-19, who are aging out of the foster care system, in north Oklahoma City. The new homes have been created for Pivot, an organisation supporting disadvantaged youth in Oklahoma.
Situated within a grove of trees this ‘micro-masterplan’, includes 12 homes all of a similar scale, offering roughly 220 square feet of living space, storage, a workstation, bathroom, and kitchen. Each tiny home has also been designed to include a covered front porch, facing a central gathering space, or public core, in the hope of fostering a greater sense of community.
The first phase of Tiny Homes Community has seen the construction of three timber-framed houses, each one unique, as the design for each home has been led by materials donated to the project.
The first tiny home has a single pitched roof, and is clad in a multi-coloured masonry bond, with a pattern generated by using four brick colours; white, slate grey, golden sunset, and onyx. The second is ADA accessible with a double pitched roof, and clad in orange custom panels CNC routed into a shingle pattern. The third home is a barrel-vaulted structure topped with synthetic grass.
