Living in a tiny apartment — or tiny home — no longer needs to mean giving up the luxury of a dishwasher. Meet Tetra, an award-winning countertop dishwasher that’s not only compact and cute as a button, but is also easy to install (no plumbing needed) and affordable with a limited pre-order price of $299. Produced by Heatworks and designed by frog, the small-but-mighty Tetra is marketed with a 10-minute load cycle and was recently demoed at CES 2019 earlier this month.

There are a lot of electronic ways that one’s identity can be stolen in 2019, but the old-fashioned “dig through the trash to find a piece of mail with personal information on it” method is still a threat, too. It’s no secret that you should destroy any documents that feature your social security number before throwing them out. But even when it comes to plain ol’ mail sans social security number, I still feel weird about cavalierly tossing it, especially when it prominently features my name, address, and/or any other personal information.

Copenhagen-based Henning Larsen Architects has completed The Wave, a striking wave-shaped apartment complex that has made splashes internationally long before the project was finished. Located in Vejle, Denmark, the award-winning building was designed as an extension of its surroundings, from the waterfront location to the rolling, forested hills that rise from Vejle Fjord. The Wave’s sculptural silhouette comprises five rounded towers that create a new visual landmark for the town and are visible from rail, road and sea.

studio velocity embarked on the design of the kowa apartments with the aim of rebuilding a housing complex in mihama, a seaside town on the southern tip of a peninsula in japan’s aichi prefecture. as the site’s pre-existing, 1950s-era apartment building was facing such issues as structural failure and decline in occupation, the studio resolved to replace the unusable structure with an open, friendly complex of spaces for multi-generational families. while the number of apartments was reduced in the new plan, an ambiguous boundary between public and private spaces promotes engagement between neighbors.

We’ve seen a lot of unique glamping options, but one resort in Northern California is taking guests back to the Wild West. Guests at the Yosemite Pines RV Resort, just 22 miles from Yosemite National Park, can enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience by sleeping in large Conestoga wagons. Not only do the wagons include luxurious interiors, but they also come with private picnic areas to fully enjoy the natural surroundings.

Minarc has thrown their hat into the ring with their answer to California’s housing crisis – the Plús Hús, which is Icelandic for “plus house”. State regulations on ADUs (Accessory Dwelling Units), or “Granny flats”, have been loosened, meaning tiny houses can exist, which sent LA architectural firm Minarc to the drawing board. Their 16′ x 20′ structures are detached private units that are completely customizable allowing the buyer to use them for personal use or to turn into a rental. The Icelandic-inspired homes come flat-packed helping to reduce the cost of your future home office, guest house, rental apartment, yoga studio, or artist space.
