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.

Despite their apparent difference from the outside, internally each home is finished in light wood millwork, sealed concrete floors, and chrome hardware, and heighted by an individual accent colour.
