Tilthouse

In 2002 Wout graduated from The Design Academy Eindhoven with two graduation projects. One of them was the Tilthouse (or Kantelwoning in dutch).

Living as a student in the Netherlands, it was always a challenge finding an affordable place to live. The Tilthouse was born from precisely that frustration. It provides a solution for utilizing a limited amount of space with maximum efficiency, while still begin very mobile. It was a Tiny House avant la lettre.

The Tilthouse Project was exhibited at the Museum für Gestaltung in Zurich, Interieur Kortrijk as the winner of the Design for Europe award and various places in Antwerp and Brussels.
