@tsarstepan,
This is where they go when there's no more room under the bridges.

Give it a miss, dlowan.

From The River Cottage HQ website

We are really pleased to announce that, for the first time ever, you can stay overnight with us at Park Farm throughout August.

Available to rent are our stylish shepherd huts set in the beautiful grounds of Park Farm

Shepherd Hut accommodation

Handmade by Plankbridge based in Dorset, these beautifully crafted huts are a completely unique experience and are carefully designed to keep you warm and comfortable.

Decorated in neutral colours, each hut has a double bed and a handmade wood burning stove.

The wood burner will keep you toasty warm at night and is ideal for brewing morning tea and coffee.

There is no electricity with the huts, so each hut will be powered by a rechargeable light and a light placed outside to guide you home at night.

Accompanying the huts, there will be eco toilets, an onsite chambermaid, and showering facilities will be available in our 17th Century farmhouse - towels provided.

When you wake in the morning, to the sounds of the farm, you'll step out of your hut with a stunning view of the Axe Valley, where River Cottage HQ is nestled, before strolling down the hill to our 17th Century farmhouse for a delicious River Cottage breakfast.

Price: £100 per hut, per night.

@littlek,
Doubt it. Radon is usually associated with granite, and stuff like that.

Still, I wonder if they charge less because of the size, or more for the novelty value of sleeping in a sewer pipe.

@roger,
I neither see a place for a bathroom nor a television. They better charge less then their regular fare.

Please take the time to Google in
330 sq ft Hong Kong apartment
There is a 4 minute long video that you need to watch to appreciate how the young architect managed to incorporate some 24 different "rooms."
I was impressed.
You would need to be a very organized person to live in that sized space.

@realjohnboy,
we used to rent office spaces in Taiwan "By the PING" which was (I believe) 11 square feet. The offices could be very very small, some barely big enough for a desk and a fax and "blueprint" fax. I remember we once had a 4 ping office in Kaoshung, and we only rented it for a month until we had permanent space. Only one person could fit in at a time. Big Corner offices are typically a US perq.

Yep. New York Times had showcased this very practical and amazing feat of spatial engineering.

Somewhat off the new and cute theme, but still what I'd call unique and tiny:


On my last trip to italy, I didn't like one city, as I was getting pretty crabby after nearly a month of dashing from place to place and it took me forever to find a room one of the two cities I couldn't reserve in, and the city was full of graffiti. So, I got to Florence two days early for my reservations, and resorted to going into the tourist help office at the train station.

I looked over the rooms available, and saw the name of a hotel I'd always wanted to stay at, that I knew was expensive, and there was a room available for only about fifteen dollars more than the most expensive on the trip, and it had been a cheapo trip, mostly extremely cheapo. So I said yes. I hadn't picked the hotel in the first place, back when planning the trip, because it was out of my league. I suppose it is their "worst" room. I stayed there two nights, thought myself queen of the May, except that it was April.

The hotel is Loggiato dei Serviti, on my favorite Florence piazza, S.S. Annunziata. The building it is in was built as a monastery for the Servite order, directly across from Brunelleschi's Orphanage, which it mimicked; the church on another side of the piazza was later modified to resemble both the Brunelleschi and Sangallo's Servite monastery.

The room was eensy, but you can tell from the photo, pretty extraordinary.

You went in the door into a minor hallway, maybe 4 feet wide and, oh, five feet long, and at the end of it was a room about eight feet deep and probably 7 feet wide. Off that entry hall was a tiny bathroom w. shower. I think that's an armoire to the right, and I slightly remember a small antique dresser.
Even though the room faced a sometimes noisy piazza, what with the motociclette, it was quiet, as behind those drapes were strong thick louver window shutters.

Here's the entire hotel facade -

If any of you ever consider staying there, it is very handy, three blocks or so from the duomo off of Via dei Servi.

P.S. The next hotel, the one my earlier reservations were at, was Morandi alla Crocetta, which I recommend too - it was more spare but equally interesting, about two blocks away from that piazza. Just checked, looks like that's expensive now. Sigh...

You furnish your own non-electric television.

@YukiL33,
Is this a photo of a Japanese hotel? I've heard and seen articles about these types of beehive hotels in Japan.

Yuki - I don't think you understand the meaning of the word "unique"

anyway.....

That 330 sq ft apt is facinating.
However, for me, I'd have the whole thing messed up in a minute.

It would take me a lifetime to become that organized, to move all the walls appropriately, etc.

What if you wanted to watch a movie while in the soaker tube?
Can you cook a meal while engaging in activity in another "room"?

@YukiL33,
This looks like a facility for a medical procedure to me! (Although I can see these small chamber rooms could be good ideas.
