Eco-Friendly Tiny Houses for Writers Rise in NorCal Mountains

Is this quartet of cedar-clad dwellings plopped on California's Santa Cruz Mountains another super adorable tiny house village built by best friends who want to live together in the middle of nowhere? Not quite, but it could very well be. Designed by New York City-based architect Cass Calder Smith for the Djerassi Resident Artists Program, the 280-square-foot cabins will give a few lucky writers a rad minimalist-chic tiny living experience.

The four units, each equipped with a desk facing a sliding glass door (and patio, and all the views!), sleeping nook, and bathroom, are also united above via a metal solar collection canopy. The cluster of writer studios will also share a nearby facility intended for socializing and other artist services. Another win for communal living!
