Spectacular Zen Inspired Dream Tiny House

Located in beautiful Byron Bay, Australia, this wonderful tiny home on wheels absolutely has it all. It’s open, spacious and light while being filled with some truly wonderful spatial design features which makes it the perfect home for it’s owners Kester and Nadia. 

Aptly named the Zen Tiny House, the home’s design has largely been inspired by a mixture of both Japanese and Scandinavian influence which is evident from the simple yet striking exterior (including the typical Scandinavian sky blue door) to it’s elegant and flowing interior spaces.

With land prices in Byron Bay skyrocketing and housing affordability issues reaching all new heights, the couple have been fortunate enough to  find a wonderful parking spot for their home in a suburban back-yard. Here, they are able to live together with friends and share resources, while still remaining in their own private spaces.

Inside, the home on wheels is breathtaking. At roughly 3.5 x 7 meters (11 x 23ft) the home is wonderfully spacious, with high ceilings and clever design allowing the home to always feel open. The large sliding doors and wrap around deck give the home a wonderful connection to the surrounding gardens and makes out-door living easy.

One of the home’s most impressive aspects is the Japanese inspired cabinetry design, which extends into the kitchen and gives the tiny house an incredible amount of much needed storage space. Having ample and organised storage means that everything in the home has it’s place, makes cleaning up simple and helps to ensure the house remains uncluttered.

One of my favourite features of the home (aside from the spectacular kitchen which is shown in the above video) is the seating nook built into the bay window, which extends to provide not only wonderful views of the neighbouring reserve, but also affords a cosy space to sit and read while watching the world go by.

In this home, great care has been taken to bring the outdoors inside with a cleverly created zen style garden in the sleeping loft, which adds a spectacular feature when viewed from below while also creating privacy in the loft area.

For Kester and Nadia, this home is perfect. The fact that they put so much thought and effort into the homes design has resulted in a house which is not only stunning to look at, but functions in a way which enhances their lives which is exactly what good architecture should do. Be sure to watch the full video (above) to find out more about this wonderful home.

    Hello I too would love plans for this house if it is possible. I have been planning something similar in my head and this would be a great starting point.

  2. Rebecca

    Wow Kester and Nadia! This home is so stunning and by far our favourite ever. Would move in there tomorrow as it ticks all the boxes we also value/need. Another ‘hands up’ interest in the design/materials and plans!

    Hello Bryce!

    I write for the same reason, I would love to buy the plans, or to get in touch with Kester and Nadia, I just fell in love with this tiny house, amazing design, functional, and I would like to use their plan, to build my tiny house.
    If it is possible, please send me some information, how I can reach them.

    Thank You, and congratulation for the show!

    Are copies of the plans of this home available? Beautiful home and lovely layout!

    From the comments it looks like someone has already inquired about plans for the design. It doesn’t appear that comment was addressed. I would also be interested in the plans and the cost they would charge for them.
    Look forward to your timely response.

    Hi Bryce,

    1. Thank you for featuring such lovely homes and people. It’s so inspiring to watch and listen and learn.

    2. I’ve recently started my own tiny house journey, and I’m currently at the stage of seeking the best design/plan for us.

    PLEEEASE, would you put me in touch with Kester and Nadia? Or, (if privacy rules don’t allow you to give me their contact info, would you be so kind as to give them my email and ask them to contact me?)

    They have truly inspired me.
    I don’t have a lot of support in my journey,
    but seeing their Zen home and listening to their story, I feel it is still possible! I have hope!

    I feel it would be such an honour and a gift to be able to have plans and be able to base my design around theirs.

    Please please PLEASE put them in touch with me?

      (or, p.s.
      Kester and Nadia, if you’re reading this,
      PLEEEASE reach out and respond?

      I would sincerely love to get in touch and ask a couple questions about the design/plans, etc.

      Thank you for being such an inspiration and a light.

    I love this tiny home. I have been looking at tiny homes for a long while now and this one is one of my favourites. Would you know if the plans are available.
    Thanks for sharing

    What an amazing place!
    One of the most livable tiny houses I have seen.
    I’d be interested to know the height of this house as well as the length of their loft?
    Also, it would be great to know how much this ended up weighing given how wide it is.
    Thanks for the video Bryce! Legend!
