Apartment Transformed Into Infinite Space, Inspired by Living Aboard A Boat

When Christian Schallert isn’t cooking, dressing, sleeping or eating, his 24 square meter (258 square feet) apartment is an empty cube. To use a piece of furniture, he has to build it.

To sleep, he rolls his bed out from under the balcony, his stairs become become bedside tables and he can even swing his tv out from the wall.

To dine, he lowers a plank from the wall, his flower-stand becomes a support and his stairs become a bench.

To cook, he clicks a spot on his vast wall of click-able furniture, and a spring-loaded door swings up to reveal an instant kitchen: double-burner, dishwasher, sink, countertop and microwave oven. The full-sized refrigerator and freezer click open just alongside.

Located in Barcelona’s hip Born district, the tiny apartment is a remodeled pigeon loft.  It was designed by architect Barbara Appolloni and Christian (a Barcelona-based photographer) says its design was inspired by the space-saving furniture aboard boats, as well as the clean lines of a small Japanese home.

A 24 square meter apartment. Hell, right? Well, this guy has used boats as inspiration to create a space that transforms based on what activity you’re doing in your home. What futuristic genius.
