Berlin-based architect and founder of Hartz IV MÃ¶bel, Van Bo Le-Mentzel, has created the smallest house in the world.
Called the â€˜One-Sqm-Houseâ€™, the DIY wooden house measures only one square meter; but through a flipping mechanism, it can provide a cozy place to sleep.
Le-Mentzelâ€™s brainchild was harboured from spending much of his life as a refugee, moving around, dependent on social subsidies and social housing. He decided to build a house that didnâ€™t need to be big, but one he could bring with him, that he could put anywhere he wanted, anytime he wanted, and call it homeâ€”a house for everybody, a square meter of freedom.
The structure of the One-Sqm-House can be assembled using everyday materials from the hardware store.
