Top 100 Home Ideas in November

From Modular Micro Condos to Hillside Mountain Homes

— November 22, 2015 — Art & Design
Familiar housing forms are completely reimagined in the most popular November 2015 home ideas. Beyond being compact enough to suit life in the city, many structures are now able to boast unusual qualities, such as being stackable, foldable or completely removable from a row of houses. As travel becomes an important part of many households, the notion of residing in a fixed dwelling is diminishing.

Similar themes of adaptability and movement are also being applied to interiors. A prime example of this is the DOM Indoors project, which puts a series of small robots to work for reconfiguring the modules of a living space into an entirely new arrangement.

These exterior and interior ideas stress the importance of flexibility in the eyes of modern homeowners, condo dwellers and renters.
