Big Tiny finds a home in Malaysia

Big Tiny's award-winning Reyes model tiny house unit, at 137sqft, comes fitted with a queen-size bed, a kitchenette, an eco-friendly toilet, and a shower facility.

THE compact living industry is set to witness a significant transformation as Big Tiny has announced the opening of its first sales office in Malaysia.

The Singapore-based company, which has scaled over 300 tiny houses worldwide, will offer Malaysians the unparalleled opportunity to own tiny houses overseas.

Founded in 2017, Big Tiny pioneered the fusion of “tiny houses” with eco-tourism in Singapore, aligning with the global movement to streamline lifestyles by downsizing homes and minimising resource consumption, while maintaining a high standard of living.

Today, its portfolio of 300 tiny houses is spread across numerous countries worldwide, such as Australia, New Zealand, France, Spain, Italy, Sweden, Taiwan and Singapore.

“Our expansion into Malaysia represents our commitment to make tiny house ownership and living more accessible and convenient for Malaysians,” says Big Tiny co-founder and chief executive officer Adrian Chia.

“We understand that there’s a growing interest in tiny houses and sustainable living in Malaysia, and we’re excited to bring our expertise, innovative designs and community spirit to this market.”

Central to Big Tiny’s model is the integration of eco-tourism to provide an income stream for owners. Additionally, the company ensures hassle-free tiny house management services, allowing owners to enjoy a passive income and positive cash flow.

With over 700 tiny house owners in Singapore since its inception, Big Tiny is now inviting Malaysians to join the tiny house movement.

The decision to expand into Malaysia was spurred by an influx of inquiries from Malaysian professionals in Singapore. These individuals, eager to introduce Big Tiny's offerings to their families and friends, inspired the establishment of the company’s sales office in Kuala Lumpur in June this year.

Equipped with a fully furnished tiny house unit, the office is poised to meet the burgeoning demand.

Big Tiny surged in popularity after the successful launch of its Tiny Away Escape @ Lazarus Island project in the south of Singapore, which created another point of interest in the country’s eco-tourism landscape.

The tiny houses on the island, which serve as a low-carbon footprint tourism destination, were officially launched on Oct 5 by Singapore’s State for Trade and Industry minister Alvin Tan during a media event hosted by the Sentosa Development Corporation.

The event marked the beginning of long-anticipated activities on the island, which include non-motorised sea sports.

The tiny houses on Lazarus Island reduce their carbon footprint by employing several sustainable efforts. These include using a solar-powered energy system, converting all food waste into compost within 24 hours, offering biodegradable shampoo and body wash in all units, and using durable and sustainable composite building materials repurposed from plastic and wood fibre.

Since its launch, Tiny Away Escape @ Lazarus Island has been fully booked till the end of the year.
