DailyDirt: Oh, Give Me A Home...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The housing market has obviously seen better times, but if you're willing to live in some small spaces, there are some creative housing designs out there. Here are just a few unique floor plans that your real estate agent probably won't show you. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    Actually, one I really liked was the "Transformer house".
    Here is one from Hong Kong:

    Real Living At The Mall

    You might take a look at the University of Alberta's Housing Union Building (1972).

    This is effectively a mall (functioning partly as a student union) with several upstairs floors of apartments over the shops. The architect, Barton Myers, is, unfortunately, a modern architect, which meant that he didn't go in for things like balconies and porches.

    Re:

    That guy's apt reminds me of a library.. and he has to be really organized and clutter-free. And hopefully, he doesn't frequently need something that he's stored in a "back layer" of his apt...
