It took just four minutes and nine seconds to install this prefabricated guest house designed by British architect Richard Horden on a site overlooking Lake Maggiore in Switzerland.

The compact prefabricated house was lifted in by helicopter and is the 16th in a series of tiny houses by Horden, of London firm Horden Cherry Lee Architects.

He first developed the concept for the Micro Compact Home back in 2005, with the ambition to create a functional and comfortable home within a 2.6 metre-wide cube.

There are now a cluster of seven in Germany and others in the Netherlands, the UK, Switzerland and the USA.

Unlike its predecessors, Micro Compact Home 016 has a lightweight frame made from aluminium rather than timber and is a metre longer to accommodate both a double bed and a dining table for eight people.
