I found this great gem today, it is only 320 square feet, but loaded with a strong aesthetic appeal.  The architects wanted think about want is truly necessary in a home in response to our ever growing housing.  They identified a few key things that every person needs: place to sleep, eat, bathe and commune with fellowship.  I think they have done an excellent job in reducing the form to its most basic elements.

The house features geothermal heating and these large doors that roll over the glass to trap in heat or cool air depending on the season.  What I am really glad to see is the inverse roof;  often on designs similar to this, they use a flat roof to go along with the modern aesthetic, but the roof is more practical, allows for thermal cooling and helps facilitate water catchment.
