Push-Button House by architect Adam Kalkin. Basically the walls of a shipping crate completely flip open via hydraulic action into a pretty impressive living space. The only bummer is that it’s not an actual house but an installation. Then again, who says we can’t daydream?

Architect Han Slawik built this tiny home, called Housebox, as an attempt to create an affordable housing solution for people on the move. Inspired by shipping containers, the place is only 150 square feet big. Thanks to the fact that Housebox is a three story building, its footprint is even smaller, approximately 75 square feet.

We remembered seeing this studio apartment on HGTV a few years ago, so when we spotted these scans on Lisa's blog Small Space Style, we had to share.  Back in 2003, Canadian Style at Home magazine featured this 400 square foot studio that made one room living seem not only doable, but also done in a comfortable style that doesn't feel claustrophobic.
