Finding an apartment in a big city that you can call your own is increasingly difficult to find and the sky-high prices add to the conundrum of the young urban denizen. Taipei, Taiwan is one such bustling city where every inch of space is an absolute premium and homeowners are forced to make the most of what is on offer. This tiny old apartment is a perfect example of one such space which was completely transformed by A Little Design with ‘out of the box’ design that taps into the vertical room available. Designed to meet the demands of a young globetrotter, the renovated apartment focuses on functionality coupled with a deceptively airy ambiance.
Despite the limited 22 square meters on offer, the designers attempt to create an open and unhindered living space where there are no further partitions that turn it into a claustrophobic setting. A corner window bench and twin tables that double as both workstation and dining area ensure that the living area is uncluttered even as the tall wardrobe offers ample storage space. It is the open shelves above the wardrobe that draw your attention instantly as they bring both aesthetic charm and practicality to the small interior.
A narrow entrance leads to the kitchen and the bathroom next to it which seem a lot more spacious than they really are thanks to the all-white color scheme. With a mezzanine level bedroom above the bathroom, and an additional work area squeezed into this loft space, this is an apartment where every last bit of room is fully tapped into. Clever, resourceful and clean, this ingenious Taipei home gives us ample inspiration when it comes to maximizing space. [Photography: Hey! Cheese]
