Cramped for space? Quit complaining.

Hong Kong Architect, Gary Chang, has a very creative way to work around the space constraints in his tiny apartment. Using a system of sliding walls and fold away furniture he utilizes literally every inch of his space.

A Tiny Apartment Transforms into 24 Rooms

In slightly over 300 sq. ft. he has created a space that is able to reconfigure itself into twenty four different forms. Besides being just plain cool, this space is simple, efficient and very eco-friendly. Amazing to see solutions such as this that don’t come across as strictly utilitarian, but also with a sense of whimsy. This is a perfect example of the type of creative thinking we all need to keep in mind when working with clients who continue to have greater demand for consolidating their office spaces, saving money and implementing more sustainable practices into their organizations.
