Here, everything is in its place.
Based on the research results of the architectural society RIBA in England are building the smallest homes in Western Europe. These results caused a storm of debate and controversy, because some believe that it is unacceptable to such an extent to humiliate the dignity of its citizens, while others argue that it is the impetus for the development of new construction technology and rational design projects. We picked three of the most interesting and original examples that clearly show how the British managed wisely to build every meter of available space, turning a small house into an ergonomic and comfortable home.
A small area of the premises does not mean that to live in it will be uncomfortable, and distress will afflict all of its inhabitants. After all, if rational and reasonable use of the space available, and a lot of advantages you can find. Indeed, small housing more economical. It is not only the initial cost. For such square is charged, the minimum amount of taxes, utility bills are reduced, and easier to implement energy-efficient technologies. And for the owners and designers is a very good reason to include all their imagination and creativity, trying to rationally plan every inch of a tiny house.
The following examples are a clear indication that size is not the main condition to create coziness and warm intimacy.
1. The narrowest house in London
The width of the narrowest houses of London is only 2.4 m.
This is the narrowest house in London is located in the historic part of the city and in its time was constructed in the passage between the two stables, when the need for this kind of buildings anymore. Given that the passage between the houses is quite narrow, and the house turned out to be only 2.4 meters wide, but the height of its three floors. The main problem of this unusual accommodation – a small width and the absence of natural light.
Little house after a complete renovation.
But when young couple Tom and Sarah Tidbury purchased it, I immediately turned to British architecture practice Alma-NAC with a request to increase and make more comfortable and bright their tiny house. Because to change the facade and forbidden to make any drastic changes too, the architects have designed a very original project, which allowed not only to make the house bigger, but cozier.
The redevelopment plan, narrow house.
Thanks to their unusual design has the opportunity, at each of the three floors, you can attach not only another room but also very original design of pitched roof with large Windows (facing the courtyard), which allowed us to add sunlight and heat. After a complete renovation usable area of the house amounted to 69 sq m and the living one and a half times less.
On the first floor was organized through the space.
The first floor was turned into a combined common area through the open space where the front door immediately starts living. It has designed a functional kitchen that leads in a very cozy dining room.
To maximize the use of vertical surfaces was organized roomy shelves and cupboards that allow you to hide all things without occupying much valuable space. On the other end of the narrow houses have a second door that leads into the garden; his door was glass, so as not to impede the penetration of sunlight.

On the third floor and placed their bedroom with a huge bed and a small office, where mounted table and open shelf with books.

2. The little house turned into a business card architectural Bureau
A small house in a working class neighborhood in London’s East End.
Its small and very very presentable house, a young British architect George Bradley acquired in a working class neighborhood in London’s East End in 2006. Because of the large budget he had, then reconstruction, he was engaged with his girlfriend Helen (she later became his wife) and his colleague and friend, Ewald. Three years lasted the fundraising and redevelopment of this unsightly housing, but the result is very pleased not only its owner, but also became a hallmark of the architectural office that George subsequently opened.
The interior space changed at home.
All the internal space was reshaped and re-created, that would be more comfortable to live was his family and him to do. For interior decoration were used only natural materials, which George even treated their own hands to meet the idea. To expand the living space was moved to the ladder in the center of the house visually to increase it and make more stylish interior.
Replaced a small window on the huge stained glass to add light and space. Using plywood partitions could place separate kitchen, which is equipped with all necessary furniture and appliances.
Covert and overt storage system in the house.
To save space, storage was created and hidden cabinets, racks and lockers stashed throughout the house. They are hiding under the stairs, between the slopes of the roof, occupy all the narrow and long piers, they are very skillfully customized in color and texture, therefore they do not stand out against the background of the interior.
Bathroom small house.
Also was a converted bedroom and bathroom, which has developed into a modern and comfortable space.
Old uncomfortable house turned into a comfortable home.
The purchase and renovation of this tiny home was spent 470 thousand dollars, and its value reaches 1.3 million, so the size turned out to be entirely not the point!
3. Hemp cottage
Eco-friendly house in Northern Ireland.
This absolutely fabulous project designed by the renowned Scottish architect Tom Wooley is a member of the Royal Academy of architecture, Professor of Scottish University, for a customer who wished to live away from the city fuss and in a clean house, made only from natural materials. Even though it was created 10 years ago, but still is the most famous and extraordinary character of the British “green” construction.
The house was created with only natural materials and special technology.
This little house was built in a picturesque Apple orchard on the banks of the Irish river Ballynahinch exclusively from natural materials that have been made by special technology. Plate for the walls was poured from an unusual composition – tops of hemp and lime (so far, this firm has used this mortar for construction), which proved to be a very good heat and sound insulation properties.
