Take a Tour of This Awesome Off-grid Tiny House Perfect for Stargazing

by Simplify

The simple shape of this off-grid tiny house takes the iconic form of a tin shed and infuses it with luxury materials. The inside of this tiny house is more complex than it looks from the outside because of its highly functional design.

Named Stella the Stargazer, this tiny house in Australia is 204 square feet large but has a platform bed that slides out from one end of the home, allowing its owners the option to sleep soundly under the stars.

The Melbourne-based team at Ample Architecture + Design created this tiny home, designed to be lightweight and mobile enough to follow the stars. It uses salvaged building materials from a farm shack the team demolished on another project.

Stella has a 3-kilowatt solar system, a water tank that holds just over 1,000 gallons, and her own septic storage system which makes her completely off-grid.

Stella is designed inside as a compact one-bedroom apartment. Enter through the sliding glass doors into a galley kitchen.

The star of the show is the sleeping platform that rolls out into the open sky on a set of industrial rollers. This clever design opens up space for the mobile dining table and banquette seating creates a spacious dining area.

Outside on the deck, there’s a more functional eating space with a bar-height table and chairs, plus a fire pit cooking area, all of which overlook incredible vistas.

Stella is about the quality rather than the quantity of features. She showcases the creative use of how warm, textured, upcycled materials can achieve magical everyday experiences while living in a tiny house off grid.

Do you think you could live happily with a dreamy bed that slides out under the stars? Let us know in the comments.
