small space inspiration: 24+ rooms in 344 square feet

Using sliding panels and walls and consummately clever thinking, architect Gary Chang revamped his tiny 344-square-foot Hong Kong apartment to be able to change it into 24 different designs. It totally challenges preconceived notions of what a space can be, which is Chang’s mission. We are especially inspired by his use of sliding walls, which offers fantastic potential in small urban spaces, allowing them to become mutable and expansive. And we wish there were a place to buy the sleek murphy bed-cum-sofa he designed.

We love this quote from Design Milk’s great interview: “Psychologically, one should ‘maintain’ an open mind on how to use the space and avoid, as much as possible, the pre-conceptions on what a ‘home’ should function and look like.”
