At the Helsinki Design Week, Helsinki-based Casagrande Laboratory showed off the Tikku (Finnish for “stick”), a three-story house that fits in a parking spot. Despite being small, it has been designed to be roomy enough to work and live comfortably. From the article on TechCrunch:

Casagrande had considered the idea of building in parking spaces for some time, but after working with a particular material on another project–cross-laminated timber, a type of very strong engineered wood–he realized that it would be possible to stack multiple stories on a small space. While constructing a regular apartment building, he used the material to stack modules of the material together, “kind of like big Legos,” he says.
