CONCRETE PLAYGROUND: Five Inspiring Small House Designs

When you consider the ever-inflating costs associated with owning your own patch of urban paradise, it’s little wonder that people are turning to a more compact way of living.

In response, quirky micro houses are appearing in cities around the globe, as architects and owners turn their attention to designing houses with simplicity and sustainability in mind. Many designers have been influenced by Japanese architects like Yasuhiro Yamashita, who has responded to the challenge posed by space constraints by creating small but comfortable and functional living quarters like his Lucky Drops house in Tokyo.

As more and more attractive alternatives to traditional homes pop up each week, we take a look at some of our favourite not-so-grand designs.
