Eco friendly small house design
Designed by Reza Aliabadi, there are a number of interesting eco friendly concepts in this modern looking house. The entire house is only 1670 sqft but it looks surprising spacious. One of the neat design trick is to have no obstacles within the building. See the below picture to see how it is done. The only thing in the middle of the room is a kitchen island. Other than that, all other furniture are being laid near the wall.
