These conveniently compact housing units challenge the use of space and architectural design. Many of these homes are created to lessen environmental stress. Eco-conscious structures such as the 'BI(h)OME' are designed as lightweight shelters that offer an eco-friendly housing solution.

Another reason these compact housing units have become popular living facilities is due to the financial convenience. The expansion of urban areas has lead to increased costs for living accommodations. However, houses such as the Smart Student Unit designed by Tengbom provide students with an affordable housing option.

These houses also provide quiet and cozy living spaces at affordable prices for those who don't spend a lot of time at home. For busy on-the-go lifestyles, these houses provide great places to relax and rejuvenate before heading out once again.
