What follows is a list of seven of the most unique and unusually small homes from all over the world. Check it out and do let us know what you think of it;
7. The Hemloft – British Columbia
The Hemloft is among the most unique and smallest houses in the world. The humble abode was designed and created by a Canadian software developer-turned-carpenter by the name of Joel Allen. The egg-shaped tree house was built without a permit from the government though, and while it is known that it is located in the woods near Whistler, British Columbia; the exact location remains unknown.
6. Mountain Cabin – Austria
Mountain Cabin is also a unique but tiny house. It has a distinct ash-grey color and is considered a landmark in the Austrian village of Laterns. It covers an area of 87 square meters and is available as a holiday cottage to tourists.
5. The Exbury Egg – UK
This house was designed and built by Artist Stephen Turner. It doubles up as a floating home and a research station. Stephen’s work is focused on ‘long term artistic explorations of environmental settings.’ The house was created as a collaboration between the Space Placemaking and Urban Design (SPUD Group).
4. UFOGEL – Austria
The house is located on a hillside and features a design that has a mix of comfort and stilted architecture.
3. Snow House – Italy
Snow House was designed by Santambriogio – a design firm based in Milan. It is an all-glass house and has been constructed using light blue, hued glass, and steel frame. What sets it apart is the fact that even the internal furnishings have been crafted using the same glass.
2. The Keret House – Poland
The Keret House is the world’s slimmest house. In fact, it is so narrow that is has actually been built between two multi-story buildings. The structure measures 92 to 152 centimeters in width. It is more of an art installation, really.

The Transparent House covered an area of 90 square meters and was constructed by Sou Fujimoto Architects. According to the designers, the house has been inspired by the ancient ancestors that used to live in trees. The house offers amazing sunlight but no privacy at all.
