One Square Meter = Home Sweet Home
Bigger is always better, right? Not in this case. Berlin based architect Van Bo Le-Mentzel created a one square meter house.
The “One-Sqm-House”, as it is named has a lockable door, window, built in desk and when flipped on it’s side, a built in bed. The only thing this house is lacking is plumbing (which means no kitchen or bathroom).
Le-Mentzel wanted a house of his own in which he could control where he went, which way his window faced and door opened, and who his neighbors are. He drew a lot of his inspiration on aircraft cabins and their spacial savvy-ness.
The house is said to weigh a mere 90 lbs. and can easily fit into most elevators and subway cars.
Interested in occupying your own sq. meter utopia? The materials to build one cost roughly $300, or it can be rented for a little more than $1 a night. Visit airbnb for info.
