Câpsula introduces a new typology of premium tiny houses to inspire new ways to live well. Superior tiny homes, simply featuring essentials. The Dutch design label is initiated by award-winning i29 architects and kicks off during Dutch Design Week ’23.

In a complex world, they advocate simplified and uncomplicated. Câpsula builds on the promise of advanced design where less is more. Distinctive tiny architecture, rich in bare essentials. Beautifully designed dwellings with a small footprint that promote slow luxury and peace of mind. There are three models to choose from: Soft Lodge, Writers Block Hut, and Tiny Holiday Home.

 Soft Lodge
Seamlessly connecting the interior with the great outdoors from any viewpoint, the highly intuitive design of Soft Lodge expands on the urge to reconnect with nature, ourselves, and others. The striking glass facade and mirrored, angular design language with double-sided terraces seem to stand out from the natural landscape, only to blend in with the natural surroundings in a surprisingly organic way. Sustainable materials, local production and innovative design solutions — mind the zip-on curtains on both sides for two optional extra indoor (bed)rooms — make this designer home reflect a surprisingly versatile take on luxurious tiny living. 

Writers Block Hut
What’s the minimum amount of space we need to thrive? Writer’s Block Hut is a tiny object designed to set you free by offering more with less. Igniting your creativity, supporting your well-being. Featuring ample windows and a minimalistic, meticulously designed interior, Writer’s Block Hut is a wink to anyone’s experienced state of sudden brain freeze. This humble design shows how a modest dwelling can become an encouraging retreat if provided with the right design conditions.

Dutch Design Week 2023
During DDW ’23, two of the three distinct tiny houses can be experienced in real life in the garden of DOMUSDELA. Both designed by i29 architects, Soft Lodge and Writer’s Block Hut, each translate the brand’s core values — quality, versatility, flexibility — in their own way. Writer’s Block Hut will host a daily podcast with creatives who will expand on how their creative process thrives in relationship to space.

Location: DOMUSDELA, Kanaalstraat 4, Eindhoven
