In the Netherlands a single person lives on average 65 m2 according to CBS

The Housing Act prescribes spacious dwellings that only a few can afford to build, while building ground is scarce. Smaller living is obvious. 

Compact Homes brings 65 m2 comfortably down to an average of 45 m2.

For everybody

The Compact Homes universal floor plans suit everybody.

Being smaller than a conventional house and easier to manufacture, 

Compact Homes is cheaper, takes less space and comes within reach of a large audience. 

The modular structure even makes temporarily housing possible.

Simple and diverse

The modular system consists of simpel elements that can be composed into many shapes and materials. This makes Compact Homes suitable for many, in any environment.


In the Netherlands there is an enormous demand for housing.

Needless to say that the market for Compact Homes is huge.
