NEVER TOO SMALL ep.10 35m2 Tiny Apartment Design – Type Street Apartment

This apartment is built in the 1970s There are 12 units in this apartment This unit is 35m2 My inspirations is definitely
to do with the limitation and the constraint of this apartment has and so I
want to see if I can fit a big house into a small apartment I actually kept the layout pretty much as it is including the internal walls and plumbings The design of the living space revolves around how to create living and home office in the same space Spaces do need to appear and disappear
when you need them to even comes down to the furniture you pick needs to be flexible my lounge chair can convert from alounging to a office chair and at night time that gets fold away and the TV reveals itself The dining space isn’t something I use
every day and it’s only fo special occasions when guests visits so you can
slice out to form a very comfortable dining space for four to six people The kitchen is definitely the feature
it’s four meters long so you’ve got a three meter of clear bench space
everything is concealed A window is punched through between the bathroom and the kitchen to borrow daylight from the bathroom area The glass between the the bathroom and the kitchen is a privacy film and it’s activated just by
press of a button this Obama does have This apartment doesn’t have any outdoor space
I need to bring the sense of outdoor in here to achieve that I put a green wall
on the bathroom the most is real moss being preserved for me that’s a backdrop
for them to put real plants in front of it To shower are you standing on the
timber tiles and surrounded by green it kind of refreshes you One material used in the living is the mirror for the cabinet doors and stuff including the
skirting so that it’s used to give the illusion of the extended bigger space Designing small space is a very tailored way of designing so everything needs to
be carefully considered you’ve got to know your lifestyle
what’s important for you

Для России это нормальное жилье, то есть совсем не маленькое. У нас в такую площадь всовывают санузел, полноценную кухню и жилую комнату. И зачастую в таком жилище живут семьями, по 2-3 человека.

Excellent work. Very sensitive use of light, colour and living elements. Though I understand the use of mirrors, I'm not a fan of them for extending spaces. Well done, Mr. Chen!

Jack Chen, you're an artist. In Paris 50% of the apartments are studios (one room apartments), most of them are much less than 35 m2. Mine is 36 m2 (!) and very well arranged, but I'm not the landlord so what I can change is limited. I think I'll put some more plants in it, it's beautiful and it gives a feeling of a little lung. Anyway, congrats to you!

Some people arent very respectful in the comments. 🙂 people being disrespectful whenever one accepts to show there private living space, shows how some lack a lot of education. He was kind enough to welcome the youtube filming crew and explain his motivations, at no point you should be disrespectful.

And no he doesnt look richer than us, he may be living well off, but he doesnt over buy, consumate too much, he makes responsible choices and doesnt need to constantly buy, buy and buy unlike occidental homes that are filled with a lot of crap 🙂 and I mean crap in the way that they are filled with things that take the dust, never used more than once, too many clothes, etc 🙂

Minimalism isnt for rich people, its about making choices in what you need more than want, and once you know what you need to know how you want it. Its about personnal reflexion, and how to optimise your space and not overbuy

Anyway this house is one of my favorite so far 🙂 thanks nevertoosmall for sharing it

Why do people keep bicycles in their apartments especially when space is already so limited? Besides the lubricant releases an organic substance with a bad smell that’s v bad for health. I would never hire a designer who does that!
