Let's face it, no one is making more land, but we ARE making more people. Space to build your house is becoming smaller, forcing many to take a different approach to construction and interior design. In recent years, we've seen a definite trend towards smaller scale houses, that cover less space but still, if you have a decent designer, make room for all the things you need while avoiding the impression of a cramped space. Here are some fine examples:
This wood house proves that even a minimalist design can give a sense of warmth and coziness.

A recycled wooden house. As you can see in the photo, this wooden house has an entire wall made of old windows. This is an extraordinary way of recycling glass, not to mention the impressive design that gives the house charm.
