I’ll admit – it has been a long time since I was single. Over 18 years, in fact. Since I live comfortably in 120 square feet with one other person (and a cat) I started to think about what kind of space would be right for a single tiny house owner.

Before I provide my list of tiny house designs for singles I do want to say that the perfect tiny house for anyone is whatever tiny house they want to live in. But, without further ado, here are 5 designs that I think would be great for just one person.

Renzo Piano’s Tiny House. This teensy tiny house made the circuit a few weeks back. The approximately 8X10 tiny house is a lifelong dream for 75 year old award winning architect, Piano. The tiny house, called Diogene, may have been named for the Greek philosopher Diogenes who believed the artificial growth of society was not compatible with happiness. When the tiny home hits the market in about three years it will cost around $45,000. This minimalist home appears to have everything that a single person might need to be comfortable.

It’s assuring to know that one of TIME’s top 100 most influential people in the world has planted his prints in the tiny house community.

This man is an Italian prize winning architect by the name of Renzo Piano who has created his own high tech self sufficient tiny house prototype.

He is known for creating some of the most magnificent structures around  the world including the tallest skyscraper in Europe, named The Shard.

The ShardNow when you hear his credentials I’m sure you assume that his tiny house probably wouldn’t be so tiny. 300 square feet maybe? Definitely not less than 200, right?

Guess again. Piano’s tiny house project, dubbed ”Diogone” is a wooden saddle-roofed house that has a surface area of 2.4 x 2.4 meters and a ridge height of 2.3 meters. Correct me if I’m wrong but that’s just around 62 square feet!

I’m sure you’re wondering, “How did the same man who built something as large as The Shard (Europe’s tallest skyscraper) turn around and decide to build a tiny house that sounds like it might even be too small for people like you and me, who are tiny houses enthusiasts?

Well, this is not no regular tiny house because ”Diogone” was designed to function in various climate conditions as a self sufficient system that collects its own water and even supplies its own power.
