Architect designs the stunning, 183-square-foot house of your dreams

Small modern in South Africa

Tiny, sustainable living is becoming a more and more attractive solution to the problems of urban living.

So architects like the Johannesburg-based architect Clara da Cruz Almeida are coming up ingenious ways to make these teeny tiny spaces more livable.

Almeida designed and built a tiny 183-square-foot home — called the INDAWO / lifePOD — and suited it perfectly to the warm South African climate.

Though the square footage isn’t much to work with, Almeida worked closely with Johannesburg-based interior and product design firm Dokter and Misses on the pod’s clever fold-out couches, fold-down table, and enclosed storage that allow the space to transform instantaneously.

The pod also has very high ceilings, allowing for storage up along the walls and a beneath high lofted bed. The space is bright and airy since the side walls are made of see-through glass, which lets in copious amounts of light.
