The Sakura is a stunning tiny house that features a bold, modern design. It has a living/dining room, spacious bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, reading loft, and outdoor balcony. Sakura was designed by Minimaliste as a custom build for a client. With its creative and thoughtful design aspects that include abundant windows and storage in every available space, it was built for full time, comfortable living.
The coffee table in the living room converts into a dining table, transforming the seating area into a dining room for six people. Like the rest of the home, the living room has storage spaces in every nook.
The bathroom wood accents are created by dying cedar to look like aged barn wood. The contemporary vanity has a bamboo counter and the shower surround is white aluminum diamond plate.
The bedroom is large and comfortable, with a higher ceiling than you typically see in tiny houses. Large windows in the bedroom let in plenty of light. There are also many storage areas in the bedroom in cabinets and under the bed.
The kitchen contains a large refrigerator and freezer and a stainless steel oven. The kitchen area is enclosed in wood, which serves as a base for the loft space to utilize as much of the area of the home as possible.
One of the most attractive features of this home is the reading loft, accessible by a ladder. This little area has storage shelves, a pipe railing, an awning window, and a large skylight. From this level another ladder can be taken up to the rooftop terrace. Throughout the home, a hydronic underfloor heating system keeps the home at comfortable temperatures in cold weather.
We worked very hard to think different with this design. There is an incredible amount of storage in the Sakura, you can really see it is built for full time living. Storage under bed, built in walls, under every part of the modular couch…its simple, storage everywhere! The transforming coffee table and dining room area is certainly one of our best idea, with the pull-out stairs.
