Big Tiny finds a home in Malaysia

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

The Singapore-based company, which has built more than 300 tiny homes across the world, will provide Malaysians with an unparalleled opportunity to own tiny homes abroad.

Founded in 2017, Big Tiny has pioneered the integration of ‘tiny homes’ with eco-tourism in Singapore, in line with the global movement to simplify lifestyles by downsizing homes and reducing resource consumption, while maintaining a high standard of living.

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

“Our expansion into Malaysia represents our commitment to making tiny home ownership and living more accessible and convenient for Malaysians,” says Adrian Chia, Big Tiny co-founder and CEO.

“We recognize that there is a growing interest in tiny homes and sustainable living in Malaysia, and we are excited to bring our expertise, innovative designs and community spirit to this market.”

Central to the Big Tiny model is the integration of ecotourism to provide a source of income for the owners. Additionally, the company ensures hassle-free tiny home management services, allowing owners to enjoy 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 driven by an influx of inquiries from Malaysian professionals in Singapore. These individuals, eager to introduce Big Tiny’s offerings to their family and friends, inspired the establishment of the company’s sales office in Kuala Lumpur in June this year.

The office is equipped with a fully furnished small home unit and is ready to meet the increasing demand.

The Big Tiny’s popularity soared following the successful launch of the Tiny Away Escape @ Lazarus Island project in southern Singapore, creating another point of interest in the country’s eco-tourism scene.

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

The event marks the start of long-awaited activities on the island, which include non-motorized marine sports.

Tiny homes on Lazarus Island reduce their carbon emissions by employing several sustainable efforts. This includes using a solar-powered energy system, composting all food waste within 24 hours, providing biodegradable shampoo and body wash in all units, and using durable and sustainable repurposed composite building materials from plastic and wood fibres.

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