Abstract: A class of $1$-dimensional spaces is distinguished by special type embeddings in compacta, or a corresponding metric property. In this setting, a simple proof of the Oversteegen-Tymchatyn theorem that the spaces of homeomorphisms of the Sierpi\'{n}ski's Carpet and the Menger Universal Curve have dimension $\leq 1$ is given.
