Small spaces: the 24sqm lego apartment

I'm back at uni this week completing my last semester and one of the briefs I've been given is to design a small unit including a house, a shop and an apartment.
Even though I've designed small dwellings before, it is always tricky to fit all the necessities in a comfortable and well designed matter.

This example is very inspiring, and it deals with a tiny 24 sqms! This is the home of Christian Schallert which is located in Barcelona and designed by the Spanish architect Barbara Appolloni.

Make sure you check out the video, it is truly amazing how everything is tucked away nicely and fits perfectly.
