Of all the tiny houses we’ve seen, the Hus-1 is definitely the most unique in terms of shape. Designed and built by Swedish architect Torsten Ottesjö, this thin wooden sliver has a footprint of only 270 square feet, but comfortably houses two people year round. It comes complete with kitchen, dinning table, sleep quarters, and other integrated functional spaces.
Unlike compact urban living, the Hus-1 is different in that it’s surrounded by open space. The convex walls and natural wooden shingles give the structure a low profile against its surroundings and allows the focus to remain on the natural space around it. The restricted interior space virtually ensures that plenty of time will be spent outdoors, however being located in Sweden, that may not always be possible and/or pleasant.
