    Default A Tiny Apartment Transforms into 24 Rooms

    What do you fine GR folks think?

    In Hong Kong, because of the space, apartments are small and expensive. Gary Chang, an architect, decided to design a 344 sq. ft. apartment to be able to change into 24 different designs, all by just sliding panels and walls. He calls this the "Domestic Transformer."

    I would go crazy, and Hong Kong looks fucking gross.

    He did a good job though, but blech.. the building he lives in looks like a filthy dump.

    wow, that place is awesome.
    and it's not that small. i have seen smaller studio apartments in europe.


    hong kong is an amazing place to visit. everyone i know who's been there has loved it. i can't wait to go. it's full of art, food, music, a mish mash of different cultures and languages.
    it would be another thing to live there but even then, if you move there as a foreigner chances are you'll be making good money and you won't live in the neighbourhoods with the tiny box apartments but rather the more posh areas with nice places.

    344 sqft? I'm claustrophobic just thinking about it.

    That is amazing. I worry I would get a case of the fuck it's and starve because I would not put the bed away.

    The apartment block is nasty, but he has done a great job of transforming his apartment and made a brilliant solution to the lack of living space in Hong Kong.
