Renzo Piano’s ‘Diogene Cabin’ is a small eco house that provides only the necessities. The 6’ x 6’ cube house seems incredibly small, but it is packed with features. The house may not be fit for a family, but the single-person dwelling is fit with compact components of a full-sized house like a pull-out sofa in the living room, folding tables that serve as workspaces and dining surfaces, as well as a bathroom.

The house is completely self-sufficient and requires no external power to run. The super small and sustainable house makes use of the natural elements it is surrounded by, making use of technology like solar cells on the roof, rainwater collection barrels and natural ventilation.
