Public voting for the second annual Architizer A+ Awards opens today, giving you a voice in selecting the world’s best new architecture. One of our new categories this year highlights homes with small footprints (literally and often environmentally, too).
By staying under a total area of 1,000 square feet, these XS Single Family Homes save their owners on overhead, while using a fewer materials to decrease their impact on the environment. Compact, yet comfortable, the following five petite homes were named finalists for the A+ Awards for their innovative design solutions to living smaller. Once you’ve explored these tiny domiciles, cast your vote!

If you’ve ever doubted yourself, walk deep into any forest. Notice how the trees still stand even though they are given no recognition. Walk along any stream. The water still flows, though no one stops to praise it. Watch the stars late at night; they shine without acknowledgment. Humans are just the same. We are made out of the same elements as these beautiful wonders. Always remember your beauty and self worth.
