Micro Compact Home

That is the m-ch or micro compact home, a 2.6m cube lightweight compact house designed for one person or an agoraphobic couple. Its inventor, Prof. Richard Horden, wrote:

The micro compact home [m-ch] is a lightweight compact dwelling for one or two people. Its compact dimensions of 2.6m cube adapt it to a variety of sites and circumstances, and its functioning spaces of sleeping, working / dining, cooking and hygiene make it suitable for everyday use.

And if you think that no one could live in one of those little cubes, they actually have constructed a "study village" populated by students of TU Munich (makes sense, they're students - my first college apartment was no bigger than that!). They're not cheap though - they cost about EUR 25,000 to 34,000 each!

I am having a seriously hard time trying to picture a family of four living in one of those. Uh, yeah, not happening...

Nice idea, but best for singles or really intimate couples. Or really tiny leprechauns.

It may be for the agoraphobic, but it's definitely not for the claustrophobic. And I'm often banging my elbows on things as it is... I can't imagine how bruised I'd be living in something like that all the time.
