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.

    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.

    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...
