Torsten Ottesjö's Hus.Ett house is a beautiful woodland retreat with a sheen and shape reminiscent of one of Scandinavia's favorite fish - the herring. The Swedish home has a narrow and compact construction that measures a minute 1 cubic meter, challenging the concept of how much space humans need to feel comfortable. The single-room micro-structure evokes the feeling of a large and airy space and features a carefully considered plan that addresses natural human movements.

    Again, I don’t think so. 1 cubic meter is barely big enough to fit a human. The average height for a Swedish woman is 1.646m. The floor plan itself is at least 20 m square, so with a standard ceiling height of at least 2.2 meters, thats 40m cubic at least.

    Hi,
    The house is gorgeous! I have been offered a peace of land in Sweden, how much would it be if you build Hus-Ett for me?

    Lovely pavillion, but certainly not 0.1 cubic meters (about 15″ on a side??) Probably closer to 10 cubic meters.

    ‘Volumes closer to own size’ is a new thought for me and seems to make more sense.The house is lovely!

    Wonderful idea!

    It reminds me of the Tardis!

    Larger on the inside than it looks from the outside.
