The furniture is cleverly integrated in the walls in this 28 sqm micro-flat

In a 1950s building in central Milan lay a 28sqm micro-flat in dire need of a helping hand. While space was, of course, a significant limitation, the goal was to turn this dreary property into one of space and flow. Given that it still had to be functional and liveable, it was no easy task.

They used batipin plywood as their primary design element then brought it to life with loose IKEA furniture and clever use of layouts.

The living area is clean, tidy, and overlooks the terrace, while all furniture and amenities are “hidden” behind the batipin walls.
