Zero Squared, a company based in Canada, has managed to seemingly do the impossible by coming up with a design that makes it possible for tiny homes to offer increased interior space at the simple push of a button.

The challenge facing tiny homes is that if they're made too big, they run the risk of falling foul of towing laws and regulations, but if they're designed to be too small, they're less appealing. The Aurora tiny house helps residents have their cake and eat it too by being made available in a structure that's small enough to tow but can be expanded once it has been parked in its final location. The home will feature a maximum floor space of 31 square meters, and the ability to change its width from 2.6 to 4.6 meters.

With the introduction of the Aurora tiny house, it's becoming increasingly clear that some of the most innovative and intelligent innovations in architecture have to do with tiny homes.
