Need a basic place? Maybe go Naked


Don’t confuse a Naked House with a home for the naughty.

As discovered, Naked House refers to a Londonbase­d not-for-profit house builder that teamed with British studio OMMX to develop an affordable housing model for the U.K. city to offer homes stripped back to their bare necessitie­s.

“We reject the obscene accumulati­on of wealth in homes that is commonplac­e in London and want the homes to be affordable forever,” Naked told

Each home will be presented as a bare shell, with no internal walls, floors or finishes.

The homes will be sold for between 150,000 and 350,000 pounds (about $262,000 to $610,000) — a fraction of the city’s 580,000-pound ($1,010,770) average.
