Gavin Rea is a product designer by trade with a true passion for the outdoors and backpacking that has clearly influenced the style of his minimal, modular, and modern architectural design. The Tenka House is a prefabricated wood design concept that seeks to provide a minimal solution to living that floats above any landscape gracefully.
Based upon a single model, the three available two-story configurations include a one-bedroom with a side deck, two small bedrooms with a back deck, or two large bedrooms with an overhang carport — 480, 504, and 720 square meters respectfully. Every Tenka house rests on a set of pillars with a floating staircase that’s perfectly suited for construction on uneven landscapes, meaning the homes can fit into a natural surrounding with minimal environmental impact. All configurations feature huge spanning windows and wide open balconies to provide a full view of your surroundings, which hopefully includes a breathtaking scene bursting with lush green trees and crystal clear water.
