Good Things in Small Packages: Houses

So this week it's all about size and the smaller the better is our motto! So, we got curious and wondered how small can houses be and how do inhabitants and architects handle small spaces? Come and enter the world of Small House Movement.

Do you live in a house or a flat? Shared or all by yourself? What’s really important to you: Catch a lot of light, have a balcony, enough space to cook or an extra room for your camera collection? Well, here are some examples of small houses which show that even with so little space it is possible to create great places to live in. In the U.S., there is already a so called Small House Movement – which is finding it’s way to Europe now. People actually prefer to live in small houses because they are not only cheaper to build, they also offer a green way to live.

This is the smallest house in Great Britain. Good that it’s red, otherwise you might oversee it.

Wonder how to use the space you have in a efficient way – well here is a way to do it:

This flat offers you 16 square meters of pure living luxury and Steve Saur obviously knows how to use it!

This House is called “11 Boxes” and was designed by Keiji Ashizawa Design – it might be small but you’ll catch some light for sure.

This House in Tokyo might be really small, but it’s living room will offer you the most wonderful view. Isn’t the sight of that Cherry blossom tree like a dream?!

This house’s footprint is only 4 by 4 meters and it is 9 meters high – it was designed by Unemori Architects and is located in Tokyo.

Ryue Nishizawa is the architect of this house which does not only save space it also offers you a garden.

Are you already bored of all the super stylish architect deluxe houses seen here? Well, here is a small collection of more down to earth houses which are just as beautiful as the other ones, right?

Okay, okay…this one is not really a house, but hey it’s still extraordinary for a tent and you could spend your holidays in there.

Did you always want to build a tree house like you had as a child? Here is some inspiration – these tree houses are built by the designers of “Baumraum”, beyond your dreams isn’t it?

Speaking of small things that will amaze you, the Fisheye Baby 110 Cameras unique lens and film combination will allow you to fit tons of great images into a compact frame.

The Fisheye Baby 110 Cameras are fully working miniature versions of the Fisheye No. 2 designed especially to fit 110 film.

Load them with Lomography Orca B&W 100 and dive into the long forgotten world of 110 photography! Head to the 110 Camera Microsite for more information.
