New real estate trends: living in mini houses

  New real estate trends: living in mini houses

In ancient times the house was the projection of the power of the same master. The larger and more hospitable was the '' domus '', greater importance was given to the owner.
Long tree-lined avenues added majesty to the structure, so that, even today, the signs of that past are still tangible thanks to the many villas of Roman times that have remained intact until today.
Over the centuries have been many changes made to both the concept and the structure of the houses, until you get to ''necessity'' diametrically opposed.

Small House Movement", the phenomenon that is leading many investors to buy small houses located in unusual places.
The movement was born in the USA, to resize the living space without sacrificing all the comforts. How did this trend reversal come about?
Simply in response to the excessive size of buildings that characterized the economic boom after the Second World War, which saw precisely the majesty of housing as synonymous with well-being.

Today the challenge is the exact opposite: to build a super hi-tech but mini house.

But where did this new fashion take root? 
 
In the United States, just where the Tiny House mood started, the phenomenon was revealed with the characteristic ''ocean house'' in Canada (fogo island).
The particularity is given by the total insertion of the house in the rocky coast. Equipped with a solar panel, in addition to having an inimitable sea view is also eco. 
In fact, the composting plant, the wood stove and the interior finished in fir panels, contribute to environmental sustainability.

                                        

In Germany was inaugurated the first house-cube. Dimensions?
Only 7 square meters for a space where you can live in absolute normality. 

Also in Germany was created the ''magic box'', a house immersed in the forest with a living space on the ground floor, the bed and the room - study on the first floor and even a roof that can be opened to blend better with the surrounding space.

In the heart of the New Forest, in cedar wood and fir, floats the house-egg.
It is a sort of self-sufficient capsule, eco-sustainable and energy-efficient.

Last but not least, the house that defies time: built in just seven hours, can be dismantled in four.
Koda is a passive and intelligent house. The solar energy produced in more, is stored in the floor and released if necessary, while the windows exploit the sun's rays by tilting independently.

The environment in wood and technical concrete.
