The Pocket House is a new digitally fabricated tiny house designed to be comfortable, portable, affordable and easy to assemble. The City of Oakland is facing both a housing shortage and a homeless crisis and the Laney College Pocket House can help.
Designed and optimized as a 3d computer model, the parts for this tiny house prototype are cut by students on the CNC router and flatpacked, allowing for rapid assembly, minimizing tools required.
The prototype, built by the Digital Fabrication class, in collaboration with the Tiny House class, is a 100 sf bedroom planned as one of multiple modular units that will be installed on a shared site supported by shared facilities.
Built in Oakland, for Oakland, this tiny house will be designed to fit Oakland’s unique needs.
