This student apartment makes you want to go back to school

When the Amsterdam-based multidisciplinary design studio Standard Studio was asked to transform an office building in Rotterdam into 218 studio apartments for freshman students, they took their inspiration from the tiny house movement. The 18 m2 apartments in The Hermes City Plaza Student Housing had to be self-contained and be fully equiped with a toilet, shower, vanity, kitchen, dining table, desk, couch, queen size bed and plenty of storage space. In order to be able to accomodate this, the furniture has dual functionalities and the room’s height is used to the maximum.

The sink is divided by a floating panel which is on one side a sink with mirror. On the other side, it’s a kitchen sink with a handy chalkboard.
