A sliding door with a built-in dining table is just one of the ingenious features in this 35 m2 apartment

You wouldn’t think that a 35 square-meter space could function as a home as well as an office. However, with intelligent design techniques and plenty of planning, architect Jack Chen succeeded. While this Type Street apartment is his smallest project yet, it makes a sizeable impact.

The goal with this apartment was to ensure every centimeter of space was utilized in some way – be it for storage or room to move. An entire house needed to fit within a small area – including a home office. As a one-bedroom apartment with limited space, it was a huge ask.

He used mirrored cabinetry and skirting to expand the spaciousness of the living room, and packed away a foldable desk in an office nook that could be out of sight and out of mind.
