Transformer apartment

Most of us started out in shoebox sized apartments when we first moved out of our childhood homes. Everything was small...but what if you first apartment looked like this one? What if you could literary transform your space?

This 24 square meter apartment in the hip Barcelona district of Born takes its inspiration from boat design to create a space that has most of its hideaway elements tucked into one wall. Where is the bed? Under the balcony, naturally.

Spring-loaded doors conceal all the visual clutter, furniture is “built” in order to be used.

This concept might not be for everyone, but is clear that resident Christian Schallert doesn’t lack anything. The toilet is tucked behind a door, shower, two sinks - one for the bath and one for the kitchen - storage and a full kitchen that includes a dishwasher.

The result is a flexible and efficient space that transforms according to the needs of the inhabitant, and which can be cleared away with the touch of a hand. It's a beautiful space that deftly shows that with a little forethought, living small doesn't necessarily have to mean making huge sacrifices.
