Public voting for the second annual Architizer A+ Awards opens today, giving you a voice in selecting the world’s best new architecture. One of our new categories this year highlights homes with small footprints (literally and often environmentally, too).
By staying under a total area of 1,000 square feet, these XS Single Family Homes save their owners on overhead, while using a fewer materials to decrease their impact on the environment. Compact, yet comfortable, the following five petite homes were named finalists for the A+ Awards for their innovative design solutions to living smaller. Once you’ve explored these tiny domiciles, cast your vote!
