NEVER TOO SMALL ep.24 24sqm Micro Apartment – Boneca

this apartments located in Rushcutters
Bay which is a suburb in walking distance of the city as well as Sydney
Harbour this apartment building was built in
the 1960s and there’s about 4 studio apartments in the block this apartments
24 square meters when we first got the apartment was
completely different to what it currently is when you walked in the
original apartment you enter through a corridor which contained the kitchen and
the living space was combined with the bedroom
we completely demolished everything within the existing apartment we decided
it was really important to have a strong divide between what’s sleeping and
what’s living so we contained the amenities of the apartment and the
sleeping space the smallest possible area so the living area could be as big
as possible so the design idea was to have a sliding
screen that could determine the function of the apartment at any one time during
the day the timber screen creates a visual separation from the bedroom to
the living area while still allowing light to pass through when the bedroom
space is closed and I it can slide over the kitchen
opens up a sleeping space there’s a little open shelf which acts as a
bedside table and includes integrated lighting
the beds raised up and includes drawers underneath it for extra storage one thing
unique about the apartment is the full width windows and we wanted to make that
obvious from the moment you walk in we angled the joinery unit next to the bed
so we can pick up light and a sense of space the material palette was kept to a
minimum the black bud timber screen is the same as a black bud timber floor
that added a softness to the apartment the bathroom and walk-in robe
are accessed via a hidden door combining the bathroom and you’re
walking road makes the whole space feel much bigger the gray tiles in the bathroom
complement the timber floor gives the whole apartment a really earthy feel a combined with concealed lighting create
a luxurious feel as well as soon as you walk through that door there’s a
full-length mirror beyond gives you a sense of a larger space the kitchen was
really carefully considered it includes a fridge and oven a dish drawer and a
narrow cutlery drawer the kitchen also integrates a little
appliance cupboard incorporate full hi pantry stack with the minimal material palette our
bench top and splashback are also a gray concrete cities like Sydney have some
amazing old housing stock that’s been solidly built and isn’t going anywhere
and repurposing that amazing housing stock to bring it up to the way we want
to live our life now or you know just given that refresh is one of the most
sustainable ways we can continue to grow our cities

    Doesn't even looks like he lives there. No shoes on the floor, no hanging towels, no way to tell anyone was or is, there.

  2. Loretta Tay!or says:

    Too clean looking.

  3. Lambert Holtland says:

    Imagine your girl cooking and you wake up and slide the screen and mess up her scrambled eggs. 😂

  4. macforme says:

    I would need a washer and dryer to be comfortable at home. Laundromats suck. Great job on the remodel.

    easily enough. optimally living, non hoarder person can fit his hers things there easily. also entertain some friends. although 30 sqm is optimal for one person. 40 for two.

  9. K. J. Botmang says:

    So it's a jail cell… that you pay for. It goes against all human nature to confine yourself to that level. If a job require you to live like this, you need to stop making your job the priority of your life and move far away. I would prefer serve in a dinner making 15$/h living in the woods than make 80$/h living like this. On another note, the renovations are very very good.

    Too great 👍

  27. Truth Seeker says:

    This is awesome!

  28. кото фея says:

    Looks clean, as it's new. But there is almost no storage place for anything. So as I understand, the appartement is not for constant living, more for commuter.

  29. babsywoman says:

    Beautifully done!

  30. ImpromptuGal says:

    I’ve lived in small homes and it’s all about open spaces! This is an interesting idea but feels (to me) too claustrophobic. Trying to define spaces in such small quarters gives each room an incomplete feel. It’s a kitchen but it isn’t… it’s a bed… area… tiny wardrobe… etc. But he seems to like it and that’s what is all about! ✌🏻

    Is washing your clothes outside a popular thing in Australia?

  32. Makss0613 says:

    This is great if you're going to rent it as an airbnb for short-term, but if you live here, you can't have any belongings. It's impossible to store anything anywhere.

    the future of housing is about neat and minimalist. Cant wait do be an Architect in the next 5 years

  52. Baby Mochi says:

    Take it from someone that moves around a lot .this does not work. First of all, there’s way too many windows it will cost a fortune to cover those up properly so you can sleep normally. second of all it’s on the first floor so all the people that were walking by will wake you up instantly and it will give you anxiety knowing that all these people are right outside your window knowing that you are sleeping there because they saw your bed during the day. and the list goes on and on. Also the bed is between two walls how are you gonna make your bed it’s a nightmare. also it would be a great Airbnb because it’s good for one night or maybe a weekend but to live there how are you going to store your stuff you must be a minimalist to live there. Anyway it would be heaven for a temporary solution or in a city like New York but even then you don’t want to be on the first floor in a big city you will go nuts.

  53. Kelly Chase says:

    WOW This is an AMAZING use of Space, Light and Materials. The place looks so fresh and bright. I particularly Love the way You designed the kitchen to function and accommodate everything a cook would need to make a proper meal and clean up. ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT Craftsmanship throughout.
    Continued Success,

    Are you on Airbnb?

  78. Bronte C says:

    I think it's important to ask why tiny houses are becoming a trend – the rising populations of cities and the cost of living coupled with the environmental impacts of large scale living and construction mean that living tiny may become a reality for many people in the future.

  79. ИгроМан TV says:
