architecture / urban environment

micro apartment

this video takes us on a tour around a tiny apartment in Barcelona. Valentina Maini, who is an architect, transformed her 25 square meters into a little studio apartment that has everything, even a hidden bath tub.

I also live in a small apartment, though not as small as this one, and it makes you creative in finding storage solutions and using the available space as economically as possible. Also, it forces you to put a limit at how much stuff you can accumulate, just like Maini says at the end of the video. Even though I try to limit my purchases to the absolute necessary (with varying success), every once in a while I go through the house and bring all that we really don’t need and use to consignment stores.
