Worcester gives go-ahead for very tiny homes


October 19, 2018 – A community of ‘micro-homes’ each with an area of just 17.25m2 has been given the green light by Worcester City Council.

City councillors backed iKosie’s plans for 16 single-person homes to be built on a brownfield site in the city centre.  It will be the UK’s first community of iKosie’s micro-homes.

The design of the homes was inspired by yacht interiors and first-class airline suites. The company’s director Kieran O’Donnell hopes that the development could be a template and inspiration for similar housing solutions across the country. The iKozie micro-home, which was designed by O’Donnell and Andrew Eastabrook of Eastabrook Architects, has an area 17.25m2. The iKozie has a bedroom, shower room, living area and full kitchen including all appliances.

The Worcester scheme will contain five affordable homes – which will be allocated to individuals put forward from Worcester City Council’s housing list – with the remainder being rented privately. Of the 16 homes on the plot, two will be disabled friendly, while a proportion will be double-stacked.
