XSmall House by UNI

The XSmall House is one of four homes on two adjacent lots in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The owners and designers are Chaewon Kim and Beat Schenk of UNI — a multi-discipline design studio have seen their work in Dwell and featured on Apartment Therapy Boston | Modern Cambridge Cottage For Sale. ArchDaily shows us some specifics of the XSmall House.

Comprised of three rotated 16-by-22-foot boxes, the most fascinating aspect of this tiny house is the lack of many windows — natural light is delivered by corner skylights on each of the three boxes. This creates an abundance of light (and interesting lighting angles) but also retains maximum privacy for the inhabitants.
