Our Favourites: Three Small Projects from BIG
We have selected three small projects from BIG for you that could not be more diverse:
a ubiquitously placeable Tiny House offers self-sufficient living quality on the smallest scale, the redesign of a posh Danish restaurant even inspires the menu and a house for pandas creates a symbolic balance in the Copenhagen Zoo.
Small – Smaller – Klein A45: Made-to-Measure Mini-House by BIG
Just 17 m², customized, energy self-sufficient and suitable for even the most remote places: with the Klein A45 project, BIG impressively show how big a house in mini-format can be. Over a tiny space, they have created a retreat featuring a fascinating design and fittings in natural materials.

Culinary Redesign: Noma 2.0 by BIG
