在过去的几年里,越来越多的人为了省钱而放弃了传统模式的住宅,选择购买豪华的“迷你房屋”居住。

而现在,总部位于布里斯班的“迷你房屋公司”(Tiny House Company)已经发布了他们最新的小型住宅——这也许是他们有史以来最“灵活”和最奢华的设计。

这款取名“燕尾”(Swallowtai)的迷你房屋售价仅7.9万元,被称为“设施齐全的轮子上的小屋”,其面积仅为7.2米x 2.5米(相当于两个停车位大小),几乎可以放置在任何地方。

And now, the Brisbane-based Tiny House Company has released their newest tiny home - a design that is perhaps their most 'flexible' and luxe design yet

总部位于布里斯班的Tiny House Company以其“紧凑,功能齐全的可移动的住宅”而闻名,而公司创始人不但出售它们,而且自己也住在这样的房子里。

年轻情侣安德鲁·卡特(Andrew Carter)和拉拉·诺贝尔(Lara Nobel)都拥有建筑硕士学位,他们与一名经验丰富的建筑师朋友格雷格·索顿(Greg Thornton)合作设计出了这些优质的迷你房屋。

At just $79,000 the 'Swallowtail' home is described as a 'complete tiny house on wheels' and at just 7.2 metres x 2.5 metres (the size of two parking spots) in size it can be set down almost anywhere

他们注意到,澳大利亚的住房面积是世界上最大的之一,然后决心要为传统的“郊区四卧室独立屋”提供一些替代方案。

就这样,他们设计出了第一栋迷你小屋,它方便、灵活,可以随时搬家,可以提供均衡的生活方式,甚至不必背上房贷负担。

The new model has been designed to 'grow and expand' with homeowners as their needs and budget grow, with the structure, spatial arrangement and functionality able to accommodate a range of optional extras and different furniture arrangements

而新款设计可以随屋主需求与预算的增长“增加功能和扩容”相一致,其结构、空间布局和功能都可以适应各种可选的附加设施和不同的家具布置。

住户可以添加储物空间,架子,可以选择增加或升级门窗,还可以安装遮阳篷、花盆箱、高端装置和附加橱柜,屋内空间足够宽敞,可以装设隔墙,并且可以在合适的地方安装电视并悬挂画作。

Dwellers can add storage, shelving, optional window/door upgrades and additions, awnings, a planter box, higher-end fixtures and additional cabinetry and there is ample room for clear wall space in sensible locations for TVs and pictures to be hung

屋外设有一个蝴蝶屋顶,配有集成的水槽和落水管,便于连接和集水,所用的材料也经过精心挑选也,可以应对澳大利亚最恶劣的气候。

屋内设有下拉式的阁楼,让屋主可以最大限度地灵活使用空间。还有一个宽敞的起居室,厨房区和一间浴室,居民可以通过百叶窗看到外面的景色。

The outside of the abode features a butterfly roof with an integrated box gutter and downpipe for easy connection and water collection and the materials used were selected to protect from the harshest of Australian climates

厨房橱柜本身基于宜家的模块化系统,可根据需要进行更改和扩展。

诺贝尔说:“对于我们这个年纪的人来说,住在市区实在太贵了,但我们又必须进城上班,所有这些因素都很棘手。”

The loft can be used as a bedroom or as a storage space and can be adapted over time with different add-ons 

但他们的小房子售价仅为10万元

这对情侣的床位于沙发上方,当需要时,他们按下一个小按钮,床铺会沿着墙壁降下。“通过遥控无线控制,这张床不需要折迭,不需要打包……你甚至不需要铺床,反正眼不见,心不烦。”

The high-end design and construction for the 2.5 x 7.5m abodes (the size of two parking spots) costs between $75,000 and $150,000 and each one is both flexible and built on a trailer (pictured is Miss Noble's home)

可拆卸的甲板是最后的令人印象深刻的功能,几乎能使房子的地板面积增加一倍。

每一栋迷你房屋需要10-12周的时间来建造,一旦完成,可以运送到任何地方。

这些房屋经过登记,可以放在路上,也可以放在地基上,以获得更加稳定的永久居住权。

'For people our age, it's also not affordable to keep living in the city but we have to for work and there's all of these tricky factors,' Miss Nobel said
