Architect Angel Rico has turned a small 215 square feet (20 square meter) apartment into a living space that can accommodate a family of three and still have room for two overnight guests.

The big space-saver that makes this possible is a transforming modular box that contains the kitchen, a murphy bed and a bookcase/storage unit that also functions as a room divider.
