World’s Smallest House Takes Only 1 Square Meter

Berlin-based architect Van Bo Le-Mentzel and founder of Hartz IV Möbel, has created “One-Sqm-House” – probably the smallest house in the world. It’s a DIY wooden structure, which uses only one square meter of space and can be used as a dwelling place, mobile kiosk or even an extra room inside your apartment. Because of the flipping mechanism, it can be used both vertically or horizontally.

It consists of a wooden frame, slide window and a lockable door. The house weighs only 40 kilos and has wheels, so can be moved around easily. After spending much of his life as a refugee and having to live in social housing, Le-Mentzel decided to build a place only for himself: ”It’s the only square meter in the world where I can decide what direction the window looks in, what direction the door opens in, what neighbors I have,” he said.
