Alexis Dornier is a multifaceted practitioner that’s made a name for himself in the worlds of architecture and design. His firm, co-owned by Florian Holm, is equally as regarded, bringing sustainable practices, recyclable materials, and unique designs to the table for the pair’s interested consumers. Now, Stilt has introduced the “Tiny Tetra” House — a prefabricated home that utilizes recycled Tetra Pak beverage cartons in much of its construction.

The Tiny Tetra house might be small, but it packs quite the punch; both visually and in terms of its minimalistic environmental impact. Helmed by Dornier’s Stilt Studios, the project has made its way to Kickstarter, where a prototypical iteration has been presented for backers to criticize, refine, and provide feedback. Nestled within a gathering of trees, the 64 square-meter home looks like any other piece of prefabricated architecture, taking on glass, wood, corrugated sheeting, and a unique, slanted roof that offers gratuitous interior space to anyone dwelling within. The home features a single bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and living room, all of which have been furnished with sleek, modern furniture. But what makes the home so interesting is its material construction, which utilizes a 25% plastic and aluminum mixture sourced from Tetra Pak’s various cartons to create a “waterproof” roof lining, while still protecting inhabitants from heat and external noise. Head to the project’s Kickstarter to learn more.
