That is really cool and innovative!
Our bathroom is bigger than that - wow, I can't imagine living like that.
Suburbia, ftw.
But if you have no choice, it's really quite amazing.
Not digging the bed above the tub though.

Wow, that's pretty amazing to see something like that in Hong Kong. I always imagine those condos / apartments exist in one of metropolitan areas in Japan, but not Hong Kong.

That is a true "Necessity is the mother of invention" moment. I am very impressed with the whole layout!

Ha, my place near downtown Houston is over 10x the size! That is a pretty sweet setup though, very innovative.

That's awesome, he's one of those people that work with what he has, and not bitch and moan about how life's unfair...


it would've been awesome if those walls were remote controlled!

I'd love to live there if I was single. More than 1 person and I think it would get annoying quickly.

this guy could use some help...

"A FORMER storage cupboard is being let in London for 135 a week, it emerged today.

Measuring just 62 square feet, the converted cupboard could well be the smallest flat in the capital.

Its living space is just 7ft 6in by 3ft 4in - into which a kitchenette, shower room and wardrobe space have been squeezed.

The bed is on a raised platform measuring just 7ft 6in by 3ft and is reached using a ladder."

How did this guy afford to do all of that?? Not saying I am stereotyping him in any way, however the rest of the building looked pretty run down. Man, that must have been a huge investment. Not to forget the huge collection of CD's he has. I was very impressed. I would personally shake that mans hand. However, for as much as he spent renovating that place, perhaps he could have bought a new place??

Seems like too much of a hassle moving the walls every time you want to do something else. Would be better if you press a button and it changes the wall for you..

from what i understand, his apartment (which was his family's), is his testing ground for this architecture style, he has a company that uses this concept in hotels, from what i read that little apartment costs $1.3mm

To those that suggested that the guy should have had an automated system, please think of how much more work/space it would require. I mean the motors, wires, etc. required to move those walls require space too. So that to me defeats the purpose of maximizing the space.

That's pretty cool! Its still small as hell, but pretty impressive the way he has everything integrated.

On a side note, I will still complain about not having a basement. lol
