I came across this article in Quartz just now, and the video clip literally blew my mind:
Here in Australia we’re used to having so much space, it’s hard to believe that an apartment so tiny could be so much fun to live in – almost like an adult sized dollhouse, or perhaps a space capsule.
My favourite bit is the elevator cupboard in the kitchen. Imagine never having to bend or stretch again?
As for the cat facilities…what can I say? These architects have thought of absolutely everything, except perhaps the kitty litter. That was the one thing I didn’t see.
All in all, I would love to retire to one of these high tech apartments when I’m 90. Fun and function all in the one, small package.

I love this! Well, except for the part of people sitting on the bathtub. What if I wanted to take a bath? And where’s the toilet while people are sitting on the tub watching television? Super-cool ideas, but I’d love to see more of a tour. It’s fun, anyway! I love multi-function stuff. Except for bathrooms. They are sacred. lol

-grin- Yes! The bathroom facilities look a little too public for visitors. Even if you couldn’t actually see what was, ahem, going on, you couldn’t avoid hearing it…etc. But for short visits it would be lovely.

Miss Manners says that ladies and gentlemen simply don’t hear noises that are inappropriate for polite company. So I would have to get a whole new set of friends.

lmao – me too…um, starting with me. 😀

Ingenious! I’d have to have an outdoor space, though.

Yeah, me too. Maybe they could design a ‘people’ run outside. Or just a vertical garden full of home grown herbs etc…mmm, yes, I could live with that. 🙂

It certainly has wow factor, and yes, perfect for retirees and many things we could adapt for different disabilities. Such attention to detail, like the waterproof blind. But it also reminded me of caravan living, and I wondered whether you would tire of having to pack one area away before you could create the other.

Given that I’m not the most tidy person on earth…Yes, that would be a drawback, but so long as the the kettle and the loo were in easy reach of the bed I think I’d manage. 🙂

Wow! Love it! Of course I live in a 500 square foot apartment with a loft “bedroom” and I’m cognizant of many tricks for adding space where there is none. Thanks for sharing this tiny apartment. Maybe I should rethink my choices and find more hidden space in my place?

lol – your place is almost double the size! Mind you that’s still not saying much. Maybe you could put in one of those cat runs for Morse?

What an amazing place. I’d move into one now as long as I didn’t have to have the 3 cats as well.

Watch out! Oscar will haunt you for that one. 😉 I was actually thinking how comfy a place like that would be for retirees. Close to all amenities, tech aids for ageing knees and great views. 🙂

I love this, Meeka! Great find. And now … where can we get these? 😀

The cupboard elevators? I wish I knew. They’d pay for themselves in a week just as free entertainment. 😉
