Very often perceptions are typecast and along with it design also tends to fall in a certain comfort zone with everyone wanting the exact same thing. When it comes to the design of a home most of us tend to think about the squares and rectangles.
And the contrast amalgamates seamlessly and some wonderful views from the second tier thanks to the large glass windows ensure that the home is complete with everything that its owner who is an avid traveler and camping enthusiast asked for.
The idea here has been to create a Vietnamese home that looks lavish and yet is not too heavy on the purse strings. The front block of the home sports the living area along with the kitchen while the bedrooms are placed in the adjacent second block with an additional room on the first floor. Compact and cool this is a wonderful example of smart and savvy design.
Our next featured compact living space is different in the fact that it is advertised as a four-bed retreat for guests rather than a residence. At the same time it can serve the function of your choice including filling your home office needs. Designed by Blue Forest a company known for their luxury tree houses eco-PERCH can be installed on site in around five days! An organic shape helps the dwelling to merge well with a variety of natural surroundings.
Researchers and designers based in London and at the Technical University in Munich are responsible for the design of m-ch which mirrors the scale of a Japanese tea house. Functional and sleek the micro compact home makes efficient living a reality.
We end with the micro compact home (m-ch) an airy dwelling for one or two inhabitants. Inspired by aviation and automotive design this residence is cube-like in its shape and undeniably modern in its style. Designed in response to a demand for short stay living (think students weekend travelers and business people) m-ch brings the “less is more” philosophy to life!
When it comes to cutting down on construction and material costs along with implementing energy-saving methods one need not always turn towards ‘futuristic’ solutions alone. Traditional buildings techniques can help a great deal as well as current designers and engineers are quickly turning the pages of history back to draw some inspiration.
