Type The Sky:
font project by a student at the University of Duisburg-Essen.
Dirk Dieter, an industrial and exhibit designer
, paid $101,000 in 1999 for a 250-square-foot house
built on a triangular lot at the end of a dead-end street in Pacifica. Built in 1954, the little house was probably a warming shed for local fishermen, but Dieter's modest yet dramatic renovation
has transformed the house into a marvel of space-saving design,
inspired him to formulate strategies
and design furniture
for streamlined living
, and brought a recent appraisal of $375,000. Previously on MetaFilter: Tiny Footprints.
