Swedish architect Tommy Carlsson has created the 'Happy Cheap' home, a prefabricated house located near Stockholm, Sweden.
The affordable, space-efficient home features an irregular, cubic shape outfitted in corrugated iron. Describing his concept, Carlsson explains the home is a "vision of a better world in the small format." More importantly, the home is an examination on how we live presently, how we will live in the future and how big a home we really need.
The home spans only 700-square-meters, meaning Carlsson had to be very conscious about space. He opted for a series of angled surfaces, for both the ground floor and upper level, in order to optimize the internal space. To ensure the home remained low-cost, Carlsson used a prefabricated plywood frame that was assembled on site.
