The Buhaus Minimalist Temporary Tiny Homes Maximize Luxury Living

In November of 2018, the Woolsey Fire decimated much of the Southern California coast, tearing through Ventura and Los Angeles counties, destroying over 1,600 buildings and just shy of 100,000 acres of land, totaling $6B in damages. Among the many communities devastated by the fires was California’s picturesque seaside city of Malibu, which was hit particularly hard by the fires.

In response to the destruction, Burdge Architects joined forces with fellow California-based builder, Nate Garnero to produce stylish and comfortable prefab homes made from shipping containers that are designed to provide the displaced residents of Malibu with temporary housing that meets the community’s high standards of comfort and living. Dubbed the “Buhaus” — an amalgamation of the words “Malibu” and “Bauhaus,” the style that influenced the prefab structures — these 160 square-foot shipping containers turned swanky shelters maximize space via some clever design choices. The homes consist of a bathroom and a larger, main living area and bedroom combination that includes a sleek Murphy bed that hides a folding table underneath it, enabling the space to go from a bedroom to a living room on the fly. There’s also an outdoor patio with an outdoor shower which further maximizes the potential of the available space.
