A ten degree angle makes all the difference in this tiny appartment

The Shanghai design company TOWOdesign has transformed a 48 m2 tiny space into an incredible home, all by utilizing a 10-degree angle for spatial awareness.

By utilizing functional box-like rooms, mirrors, and plenty of space maximization, the designers were able to make it an open plan home with a bedroom, living room, bathroom, and full kitchen as well. What’s more, it’s an exquisite example of contemporary living, all the while playing on your brain’s perception of space to avoid claustrophobia and the feeling of being cramped and stepping on your family’s toes.

The kitchen operates with a large, central yellow box which acts as both storage for all areas of the home while housing all your kitchen necessities such as a fold-down dining table.

It’s here you benefit from plenty of natural light, as well as a hidden wardrobe and air conditioning unit in the leftover space by angling the room to a 10-degree angle.

Except, rather than offer bold yellow tones, you benefit from warm and cozy wood walls that provide a feeling of comfort at the same time.

Chinese people do not allow the use of mirrors you can see from the bedroom, but TOWOdesign has combatted this problem with ease.
