Since the beginning of time, a home has continued to be an entity that is intimate to all living beings on the planet. Apart from being a physical shelter for humans and their daily lives, a home forms a distinct, intimate connection with its users. Today, across the globe, we are experiencing a rise in densely populated urban areas, along with a lack of land resources to provide sufficient housing for the masses. This phenomenon has given rise to a new movement of Micro-Housing; one that commands the idea of simple but inventive living in today’s urban areas. The concept of these revolutionary homes focusses primarily on the innovation of maximum functional area in a minimum footprint, thus redefining the perception of sustainability in urban dwellings.
