Discover Your Next Vacation Rental: Charming Birdhouse-Style Tiny Home

Namo Architecture and i29 Architects have collaborated to create a charming raised tiny house/cabin nestled in a forest in the Netherlands. Dubbed the Buitenverblijf Nest, it resembles an oversized birdhouse and comfortably accommodates a family of four. Located in the Hoge Veluwe national park, it’s one of 11 dwellings developed as vacation rentals by local authorities.

Elevated on slender black supports 7.5 m (24.6 ft) above the forest floor, the cabin features exterior spaces for bird, bat, and insect nesting, along with solar panels on the roof for power supply. Visitors access the 55 sq m (592 sq ft) space via a spiral staircase leading to a decently sized terrace area on the first floor. Generous glazing, including a circular porthole-style window, fills the interior with daylight and offers picturesque forest views.

The layout is simple yet functional, comprising a compact living room with seating and a table, as well as a well-equipped kitchen with induction stove, fridge, sink, oven, dishwasher, and cabinetry. An interior staircase leads to the bathroom on a mezzanine level, featuring a shower, sink, and toilet.

The bedroom occupies the uppermost floor, providing enough headroom for standing upright. It houses a large four-person bed, ideal for a couple with children or a group of four friends, and boasts another porthole-style window for added charm.

For those interested in experiencing a night or two amidst nature, the Buitenverblijf Nest is available for rent on Airbnb.
