Jeff Wilson, Professor and Dean at the Huston-Tillotson University, lived a full year in a 3 square meter (33 sq. ft.) dumpster just to understand how much space does a human being require to live comfortably. He then proceeded to create Kasita –  a tiny house of 32 square meters (352 sq. ft.) which however has room for everything one could wish for. The house can be used as a guest house, secondary income suite, office or a studio. Almost everything in the house can be transformed according to the current need of the owner. Such houses are promoted as a solution to the growing housing crisis.

The couch can be transformed into a queen-size bed by simply extending it out. Part of the couch frame now becomes bedside tables.

At the end of the unit is a raised platform that’s surrounded by floor to ceiling windows, allowing plenty of light to fill the small space. A flat-screen television is hidden within the white storage cube with drawers, that also has a small bench next to it.
