The One-Square-Meter House: the smallest in the world

Berlin-based architect Van Bo Le-Mentzel designed and built the smallest house in the world. The wooden house measures one square meter, and its ‘flipping mechanism’ can turn this tiny house into a cozy place for a nap. Le-Mentzel took inspiration from his life as a refugee, and he decided he wanted to create a simple, affordable house that can go anywhere. Le-Mentzel’s architectural design is ‘a house for everybody, a square meter of freedom’.
