Realizing a 1m2 house inside of a dixi

Recently, it’s not so self-evident that you have that roof over your head, can keep it, or even find it. It’s shit that the housing market is currently in a housing crisis. A crisis that affects the lives of many people every day, in 's-Hertogenbosch.

What if the only option to find a house is to build one in a dixi?

Hoge Nood is the tiniest tiny house of the Netherlands. With this installation we collect and share stories about how people experience the housing crisis.

The housing crisis is not only about hard data, but especially about people.
