Imagine having your own little loft home transported to any site you want by helicopter. LoftCube by Werner Aisslinger is a prefab module designed for those who want to take their home with them wherever they go, or for anyone who wants a simple sustainable temporary home.
This modern tiny house was built to accommodate tall people. The tiny home is 21′ long with a 6′ 8″ ceiling at the entry. The rest of the house is 8′ 6″ wide and 13′ 3″ high with 130 sq. ft. of space plus a sleeping loft. The interior has stained pine flooring and maple plywood ceiling, and the exterior is mostly rain-screen siding. Like a regular camper, the house has plumbing with water hook-up underneath. The house is furnished with IKEA furniture, and the kitchen cabinets and countertops made from maple plywood and sealed with linseed oil.

The narrow house sits on a 14’x70′ lot on Craven Road. The house that was here before was a drug lab which was subsequently condemned and demolished.

Located in La Vall de Laguar (the Laguar Valley) near Valencia, Spain, this charming stone toolshed was built as a weekend country home. The land is covered in cherry trees with spectacular views of the Mediterranean, but only an agricultural tool shed could be legally built on this land.
The owner called on architects Enproyecto Arquitectura (Jorge Cortés, Sergio Gª-Gasco and Borja Garcia) to build a 25 square meter (269 sq. ft.) tool shed as a home. Local stones were used in order to blend in with its natural surroundings.
Inside the house, every inch of space is used. The all white walls also serve as closet doors. The doors open with a simple push without the need for handles, creating a clean modern look for the interior space.
