Five Ingenious Homes at the Forefront of Small-Space Design

    “A scarcity of space can trigger talent and creativity,” the Barcelona-based interiors architect Francesc Zamora Mola writes in 150 Best Mini Interior Ideas, a new book that profiles tiny homes around the world with a focus on the beauty and simplicity of their interiors. Architects and designers all have their own ways of trying to make micro homes feel spacious, and what emerges is a celebration of efficient architecture. Going far beyond the typical built-in cabinetry and lofted beds, Mola offers dozens of tips about how to design a tiny home in a way that’s creative rather than claustrophobic.

    The shingled Ufogel House has porthole windows and a “beak” that makes it look a lot like a bird. Built on stilts in Lienz, Austria by Architekterbüro Jungmann andAberjung Design Agency, the home has a sleeping loft under a curving ceiling, a dining nook, and a kitchen all clad in the same blond timber. Glass partitions separate the bedroom and bathroom, which doesn’t allow for much privacy, but does make the room look bigger.

    Tip: “Light and brightly colored surfaces are reflective, making a space feel open and airy. Go easy on the decoration in a small space where finishes are attractive and can shine on their own.”
