SNUG featured in the news recently.

A tiny home that can be flipped to be either a one-storey dwelling, or a mini two-storey apartment, has won the popular vote in the Snug competition.

The competition was run by PrefabNZ to encourage architects to design tiny homes that can be erected in city gardens as minor dwellings, helping to tackle the housing shortage in cities like Auckland.

As PrefabNZ represents makers of prefabricated buildings each of the Snug entries was designed to be made in a factory, and assembled on site.

The winner of the popular "people's choice award went to a funky tiny home that could either be a one-floor home, or a two-floor dwelling, taking up an even smaller footprint.
