I’m becoming more and more fascinated by small space living and this tiny Italian apartment has caught my eye. Exposed brick, concrete floor, stylish kitchen with ample storage and mezzanine sleeping above the bathroom and laundry. 30 fabulous square metres by Milan-based Cristina Meschi Architetto.

A small apartment in Milan, Italy uses a clever visual trick to increase the sense of space and define zones within its otherwise open plan. Vertical pieces of larch and two black painted plywood panels delineate the rooms allowing the eye to travel easily throughout the space. Clever interior design by the Milanese studio TOMOarchitects.
Living small. Tiny house. Buzz words for a fleeting trend vs social movement and way of the future. Wherever you stand on tiny houses there is something we can all agree on. How incredibly stylish and devilishly clever is this compact recreation house near Utrecht in Holland by Roel van Norel and Zecc Architecten? It comes in at 40 m² or about 430 ft². Yes you can shake your head and say it’s great for a holiday but you couldn’t live there forever. Why not? I know I’d love to give it a try.

“The brief was to breath new life into an un-renovated 42sqm one bedroom apartment from the 1930s to provide sufficient relax, play and work spaces for a young professional couple.”
At 42sqm the footprint is small but clever storage solutions and design means that the living is large. The Hacienda by Adriano Pupilli Architect.
