    Default Tiny Madrid apartment with rooms connected by a ladder

    Tiny Madrid apartment by MYCC with rooms connected by a ladder

    The owner of this Madrid apartment moves between living and working spaces like a character in a computer game, using ladders and stairs that connect platforms inserted in a single tall, narrow space.
    "[It] leads to an image that looks like those old computer platform games," said Spanish architects MYCC, who created the live-work space in a 100 cubic-metre volume.
    The architects described the volume as "an empty box waiting to be filled," adding: "The idea of light and simple floors where it could be possible to easily jump from one to another was always in mind from the very first sketches."

    So is the tub just big enough for you to squat gollum style and wash your junk?

    I quite like this. I like space saving furniture/architecture. However, I don't like the ladder - you can't carry papers or a cuppa tea to your home office - that seems impractical. And the lack of natural light would get me down after a while.

    Also there seems to be no door from the bathroom to living room or to any other room. That could make having a friend over for chili really awkward.

    Imagine if you're laying on that bed, you have a terrible urge to do #2 and you can barely squeeze your legs, but you must use the ladder!

    Lol, this appartment has potential for a good number of embarrasing toilet related incidents.

    Hideous and claustrophobic. I would go stark raving mad living in that hole in the wall.

    I also think the person that built this thinks they will never get old, but can you imagine having to climb those ladders when you're older? What a nightmare this place is.

    I'd find it very claustrophobic too. And careful with that wheeled desk chair or you'll fall over the edge.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    Huge potential for bathroom awkwardness AND evilly hilarious accidents. NO thank you. Ridiculous.

    As a claustrophobic, I'd be bonkers within 30 minutes.

    It would be like living in a loadrunner game.
