While everybody loves to live in a mansion, dwindling land resources and concerns about emissions related to architecture has made designers come up with striking living spaces that pack every basic need in a tiny package. These tiny homes might not look to be the most comfortable, but most of them feature everything that you mostly need in a living and resting space. Check out some of the most creative space saving living space designs after the break.
The One SQM house could well be the smallest house ever built. The house has a surface area of just one square meter and still it can function as an office, a bedroom and even a store. Made using simple building materials and tools, the $300 house is designed to be packed and shipped with instructions that should make it an easy DIY project.
Designed by Studio WG3, the Hypercubus is a tiny and mobile hotel room that is tilted to face the sky. The living space is designed to function as a temporary retreat for tourists who want to spend some time in the lap of nature. This tiny retreat features a bathroom, living space and even a bedroom.
Created by a Chinese student, the egg house is not only small, but is entirely eco friendly too. Featuring a bamboo frame which is then covered with a variety of insulating materials to battle out the cold, the house includes a roof mounted solar panel that generates all the energy this diminutive house needs. Even better is the fact that the house was built for just $960.
The Eco Capsule, which looks amazingly similar to the homes we used to see in Flintstones, has been conceptualized by Nice Architects. The self-sufficient capsule doesn’t need a connection for water or electricity and is made from sustainable materials such as aluminum can tiles. The capsule harvests rainwater and is powered by renewable solar energy.
The buBbLe House has been designed by MMASA and could be the world’s only house that can be folded into a box. The prototype house features everything required for a comfortable two-day stay. The house folds into a compact metal locker and can be erected at any desired location within a few minutes. While the house is made from transparent materials and doesn’t offer much privacy out of the box, you can always play around with the interiors by adding a few clothes to make your stay comfortable and private too.
