Modern Japanese Inspired Tiny Cube House

Say hello to this modern, Japanese-inspired tiny cube house. You should check out this other cube house too.

Created by Horden Cherry Lee Architects and was made available through Micro Compact Home. Just large enough for one or two people, but they can be stacked or arranged to create larger communities. It’s approximately 8.73′ by 8.73′ by 8.73′. So that’s about 75-square-feet. Pretty tiny, right? Much like all of the structures that we feature, it can be used as a guest house, a place to work in, student housing, or even a vacation cabin.

Helicopter Flown Micro House

One of the models was flown into the already prepared building site and assembled in just 4 minutes and 9 seconds, according to Gizmag.

Modern Design on this Micro Compact Home

The design includes plenty of porch space so you can enjoy the outdoors from home.

Interior of Modern Micro Compact Home

Everything is kept clean and hidden using sleek drawers and compartments.

Above you can see one of the transforming features of the cabin which allows you to convert from table and chairs and then back to a bed. Both with amazing views thanks to the large window placement.

Table Turns to Bed inside Micro Compact House

Plenty of vertical storage compartments and notice the clear door. It’s sort of like a high end Westfalia cube house.

    Interesting, but why is getting decent images / video of these things always an exercise in frustration?

    Screens with acres of empty space and tiny thumnails (not here, elsewhere), and I’ll be damned if I can see a floorplan, video, or even a picture of the toilet / shower cubicle anywhere.
