Tiny House Vinkeveen

How can a tiny house become a comfortable family home? There is one example that shows how it’s done: Fresh flowers in the kitchen, the steam from freshly made hot tea, a spacious garden and an airy and inviting living space brought together by the beautiful light. The space is similar to a typical apartment in Amsterdam and yet it’s a whole new experience of living. In the small village of Vinkeveen in the Netherlands you can feel the countryside in every corner of this homely yet modern tiny house. The interior picks up warm tones and wooden accents, and plays with glass and light to enhance the open space. High wooden ceilings allow for a warm and calm atmosphere, and the use of sunlight builds a strong link to the outdoor space. 

Welcome to Bowie Nijdam’s Wow Of The Week. He tells us about his personal connection to designing a tiny house and provides some insights into his vision of creating something new and long-lasting out of something old. Now, every detail of the house has been thought out and every room is an interior highlight that makes the lack of square meters completely fade into the background. Tiny House Vinkeveen is a perfect example how the creative choice of materials and high-quality products can contribute to a relaxed, idyllic, and contemporary living area, even if it is just as tiny as a small apartment. 

Nijdam’s tiny house is a true family project. Get to know the personal story behind it: learn how the interior and furnishing designer has realized his vision together with his father and built a tiny house that doesn’t feel tiny at all.
