How This Man Turns A 32 Square Meter (344 Square Feet) Apartment Into A Villa

03AUG2015 ck

Gary Chang has lived in the same 32 square meters (344 square feet) for nearly his entire life. Almost 40 years ago, he moved into this tiny apartment with not only his parents but also 3 younger sisters. In 1988 when his family moved out, Chang bought the place from the landlord for $45,000 and began his experiments in "small space design".

Chang is now an architect (Edge Design) with a focus on micro-apartments.

If someone knows how to turn a small room into a really cool apartment, he does!


Today, at first glance, the small space appears a fairly average open studio, but with pulls on handles, walls slide across steel tracks, Chang can have a "maximum kitchen", a guest bedroom, a library, dining room, laundry-room and even a spa. His home is tricked out with a wall-sized movie screen, a shower with color therapy and massage that doubles as a steam room, but Chang argues that the moving walls are fairly low-tech. And while he can control his appliances with his smartphone he usually prefers the manual option.

Due to less and less space in the large cities, such living concepts are very useful - they help us to preserve quality of life and maybe not going mad.
