Unique and whimsical architecture has always inspired curiosity from people everywhere. Home is our first and last place of the day. It’s a space we can feel safe in most of the time, and it’s a place where we keep our possessions.
Often, as historical towns evolve over time, small homes remain lost in the midst of an urban sprawl. Other times, people feel compelled to design unique houses that challenge our ideas of what defines a home.
When faced with the designs of some of the world’s smallest and uniques houses, we can often fantasize about what it must be like to live out our lives in a small shanty by the sea, or a tiny hole in the ground like a Hobbit, these 12 houses are so quaint you’ll find yourself moving out of your house before you know it!
1) The Broon’s House in Scotland: This quaint little home is in the middle of the Loch Shin, near a tiny town called Lairg. Of course, nobody can actually live in a home this small but it’s fun to fantasize. This house is based off a popular Scottish comic called the Broons, about a bunch of large people living in a very tiny house.
2) The Smallest House in Prague: This tiny home is located in Prague, in the Czech Republic. The small home is only 2.5 meters wide at the front. Over the years it has been a home, an art studio, and even a small bar. Now it serves as a vestibule between the two homes that were built after during the 19th century.
3) House On The Thousand Islands: This adorable home is located on one of the 1864 different islands on the USA/Canada border on Lake Ontario. It’s so close to the water, one might worry about floods! Fortunately, the great lakes are higher than sea level, so the worry of a place like this being buried by water isn’t very high. This home tetters on every last available square inch of the island!
4) Steve Areen’s Thailand House: Steve Areen is a musician and photographer living on a Mango Farm in Thailand. He built and designed this dome house for himself using natural methods and currently resides in it. What a marvel of architecture!
