Even in the smallest of homes, there are typically separate spaces for living, sleeping, and cooking. The Micro-House from Studio Liu Lubin was designed to give residents just enough space for their indoor movements like sitting, standing and lying down.

Each modular Micro-House is shaped a bit like a plus sign, with the interior shapes meant to act as simple furniture. Each Micro-House is a multi-functional (though, by most standards, incredibly small) home.

Although the individual unit can be used as a single room, multiple Micro-Houses can be grouped together to make a larger home or even a multi-family home. The units are light and easily moved, and once in place they can be assembled by hand.

The Micro-House, made of the ultra-light and very strong Fiber Reinforced Form Composite Structure, were designed to give private housing options in crowded Chinese cities. With a Micro-House community, the lines between shared and private housing would be blurred, but each unit would at least offer a tiny getaway with space for not much more than one person.
