A Vietnam based architecture firm, Vo Trong Nghia Architects, has began developing prefabricated housing for low income families in Vietnam. This concept of tiny housing would provide the people with not only a safe place to live but a durable long-term shelter too.
Since 2012 the firm has been working to create these houses for those who earn less than $100/month. Normally these people would be forced to live in temporary shacks. So the architects are creating what they call the S House 2 which can provide affordable, durable, low cost and low maintenance homes for those in need.
The current cost to develop one of these homes in Vietnam is $4,000. Below you will see that this 322 sq. ft. home is very basic. The only thing I’m concerned about is the bathroom which I wasn’t able to find but assume is located as a separate structure nearby (see below).
The S House 2 is a long structure with a sleeping area at one end, dining table in the middle, and a space for personal items at the other end. Please enjoy below.
This is a beautiful off-grid cabin designed by Midland Architects and Liz Craig Dutton. The stunning Ohio Valley Hut, as they call it, sits atop a hill and features an open concept and striking cathedral ceilings.
Covered in cedar shingles, a wall of windows looks out over the forest. There’s plenty of seating in the living area and a queen bed on the other side of the main room. A separate kitchen and bathroom take up the back of the home. What do you think of this design?

In the same vacation complex as the Istanbul cottage we recently showed you, sits the “Tokyo” cottage that hearkens to the country’s ancient architecture, with a pagoda-style roofline. It’s designed to be a romantic retreat for two in Turkey.
The covered front porch is a special place to relax any time of day, and there’s a low-set double bed under a Yin-Yang symbol. The wet bath features striking plaid tiles. What do you think?
Architect Kumiko Ouchi wanted to transform her partner’s 1970s apartment into a truly beautiful and functional space. She did an excellent job hiding anything unsightly while still including the necessary things (kitchen electronics, books, a litter box) in her overall design.
By taking out the walls in the apartment and removing a bedroom, she was able to create an open concept space with a large kitchen that still afforded privacy in the bedroom and bathroom. The hallway doubles as office space, and there are two beautiful balconies for plants.
If you’re ever in the Yucca Valley of California, this clear cabin that sits on 100 acres of the desert is a beautiful and unique place to stay. The main cabin has clear polycarbonate panels all the way around the bedroom space, and large French doors open to a deck with breathtaking views.
Just up some stairs is a private bath house with both indoor and outdoor showers, as well as a kitchen outbuilding with everything you need to cook or grill something delicious! What do you think?
