Architect’s cool tiny apartment

In Hong Kong, because of the space, apartments are small and expensive. Gary Chang, an architect, decided to design a 344 sq. ft. apartment to be able to change into 24 different designs, all by just sliding panels and walls. He calls this the “Domestic Transformer.”

  1. I really like the idea, and if I was single then I wouldn’t mind living there. I’m a spoiled American though, in that I don’t think I could stand to be cooped up with the kids in that small of an area for long. Props to his poor parents that made it work even before the renovation.

  2. Being a happy empty nester, I wouldn’t mind this at all. Except I would need a patch of land around the little house.

  3. This is an already exsisting concept. by dutch architect and designer Rietveld many decades ago. he created an open floorplan and with sliding walls he could change the layout of the whole house. inside the floorplan were no bearing walls or support beams of any kind. This is just an example of “Better to steal a good idea, than come up with a stupid one” …

    • Well, it worked for Microsoft, Apple and Oracle. I don’t think they call it stealing, but rather “research and development”.

      I would love to know how he managed to get power to the movable wall. I suspect the kitchen sink is not on that wall — movable plumbing would be a nightmare (at least the waste pipe) In any event – kudos for his innovation and that he lives with his own idea.
