Single Hauz by Front Architects

Single Hauz placed in a variety of contexts.

Based on the concept and size of an urban billboard, this micro home could be places anywhere. It has a great potential for filling out currently unused space in the urban context: An alley way, a square, between two existing buildings, in a temporary unused plot. The houses could even serve as permanent “house boats” in a harbour environment.


The building is placed on a column, containing all the technical installations. The column allows the building to be placed anywhere; but perhaps the greatest potential is in an urban environment? The minimal footprint allows for continuous pedestrian traffic below the dwelling. Like a tree house without a tree? Because the dwelling is elevated, inhabitants maintain a sense of privacy.

The column allows for parking underneath the dwelling. Possibility of adding an extra function to existing parking lots; fitting more people into the cities
