3. A small yet elegant country home

The designers of this elegant country house may have had some size restrictions to contend with, but they certainly didn't let it bother them! With large concertina doors that open up to the lush garden, this property undeniably satisfies all of our stylistic requirements.

4. Linear, slim and slender

When you have a small plot to work with, the best way to create a functional living space is to build up. This tall abode makes the most of its petite land and is an eye-catching structure.

The architects of this house have taken an impossibly small and awkward space and miraculously transformed it into a versatile, highly liveable urban paradise!

7. A charming log cabin in the woods

Is there anything cosier than a log cabin nestled against a snow-coated hillside? We don't think so, which is why number 7's house is a bright red tiny home that makes the most of its picturesque countryside.

8. Making the most of a tight space

Utilising geometry, the designers of this property have squeezed their home between two others to create a slender dwelling that offers its occupants a versatile living space clad with timber and boasting all necessary 21st-century essentials. 

9. Narrow and impressive

If you thought the last house was a tight squeeze, then take a peek at this one! Without any windows on the front elevation, this house is private and intriguing. The property is actually surprisingly spacious inside and spreads its living areas over several storeys. 

10. Colourful and simple

Tucked away behind a bright magenta wall, this next compact home offers an industrial-esque aesthetic with concrete textures and a bright yellow front door. 

11. A new take on traditional design
