Kamama Prairie Caretaker's Residence In Adams County
The Kamama Prairie Dwelling project is a tiny house, designed and constructed by University of Cincinnati graduate architecture students as a home for the prairie’s land steward, Adrienne Cassel. The house acts as many things: a vital shelter and haven for Adrienne, a permanent presence on the nature preserve, and a model in tiny house design - simple, sustainable, and beautiful.
The 160-square-foot house is designed around and within a new shipping container, which provides a framework to build off of, and constraints to build around. The house aims to be both beautiful and buildable, with a clean, minimal aesthetic to not distract from the prairie. Indoor and outdoor flexibility is key, with a semi-shaded deck as livable outdoor space. To coexist with the prairie, the house reuses many site-present materials, including barn wood and roofing tin from a previous structure on the site.
