Wow Of The Week
THE ÖÖD MIRROR HOUSE – A SUSTAINABLE HOUSE DESIGN
Let’s dive into Jan Shepherd’s WOW of the Week and take a look at the fascinating ÖÖD Mirror House. The idea for the ÖÖD House was born in 2016 when brothers Andreas and Jaak Tiik were planning a weekend hiking trip and they were unable to find any appropriate small, individual properties.
Simply erecting a tent to stay in during their hikes didn’t feel right anymore. They found that staying in a tent often meant that they weren’t able to appreciate the surrounding nature as this takes place once one is outside the tent – for example, observing the beauty of a sunrise, sunset, or a fascinating starry night.
Their concept was to create “modules” with a uniform appearance and a bold, stylish design. The most distinctive aspect of the design is the large mirrored windows that offer guests and owners of the ÖÖD Mirror House a completely unique feeling of immersion in the surrounding landscape a perfect antidote to our nature starved lives, to discover the joy of re-connecting with the wild. However, they also guarantee complete privacy when relaxing and re-charging inside the ÖÖD Mirror House. The exterior structure of the ÖÖD house blends in with the natural environment, as if camouflaged. A seamless transition is created between the landscape and the ÖÖD Mirror House.
The ÖÖD Mirror House is completely adaptable to suit all requirements, desires, and wishes. Its versatility is such that the ÖÖD House can be an ÖÖD office, meeting room, wintergarden, or studio. The design of the house provides endless possibilities for space usage within it. The Nordic minimalist house has an added bonus – two different sizes are available with this wonderful sustainably designed house construction.
We are constantly searching for more sustainable ways to live including sustainable houses. The ÖÖD sets the standard for a more sustainable house design, and not only that, but it can also move with you thanks to its flat-packed design and can be used in any climate all year round. It can accommodate a small kitchen, a bathroom, and a living space while still feeling airy, helped largely by the vast mirrored windows, which help to bring the beautiful surroundings inside.
