The limitations definitely pose a lot of challenges but it’s very interesting to see how the architects and designers overcome them and come up with cool and original build strategies. The following projects also show that a small modern house can be…

This minimalist structure is a beautiful retreat located in a remote area of Brazil. It was a project by studio MAPA and it has a minimalist and contemporary design which contrasts with the natural surroundings but also takes full advantage of the views and the scenery. It’s a prefabricated structure which was built in a factory new Sao Paulo and each individual modules was then transported here and installed on site. The modules are facing in different directions which allows them to capture gorgeous views and to take advantage of the sunrise and sunset.

The Rolling Huts

The House with Gardens room
This is not just one small house but a whole series of small houses. They were designed and built by studio Olson Kundig and they can be found in Mazama, US. They all have identical designs defined by a small footprint, a small open deck and an angled roof which sits at an angle and appears to be floating over the actual house. This effect is created using glass. Also, these cool-looking huts are raised from the ground and they have small wheels which means they can be moved around. This unusual design solution was chosen in order to allow the land to return to its natural beauty and for that to happen the houses had to have as little impact on it as possible.

Hadar’s House is a project developed by studio Asante Architecture & Design. This small house is located on the coast of Stokkøya in Norway, very close to the water and right in the middle of some rugged but very beautiful terrain. A has an amazing view of the neighboring islands and it’s a very peaceful little retreat. Its interior is very inviting. The entryway has a quirky colorful coat rack on the wall, space for bike storage and a tiled floor. The main living area is cozy and welcoming, with teal kitchen cabinetry, wood-lined walls and big windows. The lofted bedroom can be reached via a ladder and has a sliding barn door.

This small and modern-looking house is called Hüga. It was designed by studio Grandio and it’s a prefabricated structure which has been optimized to be welcoming, practical and comfortable without having a cluttered interior. It offers 45 square meters of living space in total and it’s very versatile. It can become smaller or bigger based on the needs and requirements of its inhabitants and it can be customized in many different ways. What makes it very convenient is the fact it features a very lightweight shell which, once transported on site, is reinforced with concrete. This small house can be installed in only one day and doesn’t even need a foundation.

The 12 20 House back
This house from Los Angeles occupies a plot that’s merely half the size of those of its neighbors and it’s not just because it’s small. The design created for it by studio Anonymous Architects is a very clever one indeed. They raised the house off the ground on a set of concrete pillars. This way it has very little impact on the land, occupies a smaller plot and it also gets to look over the hillside which the other houses have as a backdrop. The interior is quite interesting as well. Rather than dividing it into many small rooms, the architects to only include three main areas: a spacious living room, a bedroom and a bathroom.
