Tiny Housing BouwEXPO
There is a great deal of enthusiasm for the ‘Tiny House’ in the Netherlands, where more and more people have recently been discovering the freedom that ‘small living’ can offer. A Tiny House is an affordable and compact home that generally has a living area of less than 50m2. In 2016/2017, Almere wants to promote this new form of innovative, affordable and sustainable building through the Tiny Housing BouwEXPO.
Almere wants to explore the demand and possibilities for this type of housing - small households living in compact and affordable houses - at a BouwEXPO . The city government is organizing a competition of ideas, and has invited everyone to come up with proposals.
The 25 winning proposals can be built at three different competition sites along the Homeruspark in Almere Poort. . They will form the centrepiece of BouwEXPO 2016-2017, where everyone can come to see these Tiny Houses for themselves. Some houses will have already been completed during the EXPO, while others might still be under construction.
The BouwEXPO exhibition area will enable visitors to see and experience the construction process for themselves. Participation in the competition ‘Living Free. Your Tiny House Almere’ is open to everyone! Entries have to be submitted April 20th 2016 at the latest.
The rules for the competition and all other information on the Tiny Housing BouwEXPO are only available in Dutch. However, competition entries may be submitted in either Dutch or English.
