The Eco-house that lets You Live Like a Snail – Design You Trust

The Eco-house that lets You Live Like a Snail

Scandinavian architect Torsten Ottesjö’s Hus-1 is designed to reflect its landscape without drawing too much attention.

The whole free-standing wooden structure is made of wood and is so small that it can be literally lifted on to the back of a lorry and moved elsewhere.

Furniture is largely integral to the structure, liberating space in the tiny home, which houses two people all year round with almost all functions squeezed into just 269sq/ft of living space.
