Cute no more: This tiny house is metal, dude

Tiny houses, largely speaking, are exercises in twee adorableness. Not this one. This tiny house is metal. This tiny house is black. This tiny house is suspended under an old railway arch in the Czech Republic. Need we say more?

Czech Republic-based firm H3T Architekti is done with miniature Victorians and minuscule minimalist abodes. Instead, the firm has designed a tiny house more suitable for a witch than a ukulele busker. Dubbed “Black Flying House,” the small house is suspended by steel cables under an old railway arch, according to Curbed.

A narrow black ladder leads straight up into floating structure, which includes a living room, stove and sleeping loft. It measures just 1.7 by 2.5 meters (roughly 5.5′ by 8.2′). Brutal. [Curbed]Christopher Cameron
