In Sweden, A Beautiful 10-Square-Meters Micro-Cottage Designed For Students
By Dorothy Tan, 13 Sep 2013
When we featured this “smallest house in Sweden” last year, we thought that it was as tiny as a permanent lodging could get.
However, the Swedes have recently outdone themselves with this latest creation from Tengbom Architects—a beautiful wooden “cottage” designed for students that measures just 10-square-meters.
Amazingly, in additional to all the required features of a modern apartment—including a kitchen, a bathroom and a sleeping loft—this micro-flat also offers a small garden with a patio.
The eco-friendly structure is made of locally sourced, cross-laminated wood that has low carbon emission and is energy-efficient—construction time is also lowered as an innovative assembling technique makes it possible for it to be put together on site.
One of these lovely student units is on exhibition from now until 8 December 2013 at the Virserum Art Museum in Småland, Sweden—don’t you think that this is also a great option for dense urban living in the city?
