Madrid, Spain

Tini® is prefabricated modules made in Spain in 60 days and transported to any location. Each model comes ready-to-use and is fully furnished.
This featured tini® is a refuge in the middle of the typical landscape from Madrid. Embraced and protected by the huge Holm Oak tree, it was installed so there was no impact to the environment looking as if it has always been there.
Following this idea, the corten steel facade, in semi oxidation process perfectly matches with the surroundings and blends with the shadows casted by the tree’s branches and the movement of the rock roses.

This rough exterior contrasts with the great warmness of the interior, totally wrapped with birch wood and natural oak flooring.
This tini® has a birch wood kitchen with corian top and sink, equipped with stove top, extractor hood and integrated fridge. It also includes a complete bathroom.
Every tini® is insulated with 14cm of recycled cotton plus a continuous reflective thermal insulation layer.

In this case the client asked for extra glazing to feel totally immersed in the magnificent Holm Oak grove, therefore all the glazings have low emissivity and solar control to achieve this and still obtain a great thermal control.
The result is a very warm space, a shelter that is completely connected to the surroundings.
