Barcelona Micro Apartment

As property prices continue to skyrocket, the trend for micro apartments is growing. But living in a itty bitty teeny tiny space can be a challenge. Architecture studio Cometa Architects have transformed this small 56 sqm apartment perfectly showing how to make the most of a tiny space. Located near Barcelona´s Olympic Marina, the micro apartment has been radically remodeled with some principles of the small size naval architecture,  creating an architectural journey where one would need just the essential. The square plan of the apartment is organized around a compact wooden cabin, where the toilet, closets, laundry room and installations are located. Two pure white volumes determine the wet areas: the kitchen island and the bathtub. Despite the limited square meters, this apartment enjoys extended space thanks to the direct connection of the interior-exterior which doubles the space, letting tones of natural light enter and of course the natural breeze of the sea.
