You might daydream about running away from the everyday grind to commune with nature, but sacrificing all of home's creature comforts can be tough to swallow. (We're just not tent people around here.) Enter the "Spirit Shelter," a little shed that squeezes a bed, mini kitchen, and office into 86 square feet. That's super small — even for a tiny home — but the space wasn't designed with long-term livability in mind.
At , German architecture firm described the home as "an emotional hideaway, to live in harmony with yourself and nature." It's designed as a quiet place for meditation and self-reflection, with separate spaces designated for sleeping and what the architects call "research," filled with "tools to discover the physical world," like binoculars and books. And once you're done with all that soul-searching, just pack up and move on — the entire house fits into a small truck.
