Futuristic Living in Hong Kong

Yufang sent me a link to the following video that shows how to live big in only 300 square feet. The architect uses layers to expand and transform his living space for different uses–sleep, living room, kitchen, bath, etc. He’s taking the accordion book shelves in archives to a whole new level. This is what I call science fictional living, and I hope that IKEA is working on mass producing a similar concept for all. Check it out here.

  1. Wow, this is an amazing apartment. Of course, it can only work for one person: if two people lived there, they’d always be fighting over how to configure the walls (I want to take a bath! Well I want to watch a movie in the hammock! Well I want to cook!). Ikea does need to get on this.

    I already bought a metal-framed Ikea loft bed to store my comics and files in my office. I have my desk and bookshelves under it. It’s awesome.
