The Hinge House

Last fall, Cardinal Architecture Staff Architect Jesse Belknap volunteered with a team of architects, designers and builders to create a tiny house for the Nickelsville community in Seattle. The design team was organized by Architects Without Borders for Sawhorse Revolution, a Seattle nonprofit that runs programs to teach high school students about construction and carpentry, and the house was built by a team of student volunteers.
The “Hinge House” includes a pivoting roof to allow for maximum interior volume while meeting the limited height requirements for transport. The 8′ x 12′ house includes a front porch and loft bed, and is now housing residents at a tiny house village in Seattle’s Central District.
The project and its current resident were featured in a Seeker Network video.
