Incredible Space Maximization in a Small Studio Apartment

very tiny loft studio design 3 554x436 Incredible Space Maximization in a Small Studio Apartment

You’ve seen a lot of ingenious ideas on how to decorate small studio apartments on Freshome. Here is another tiny apartment that manages to maximize space and create a cozy living environment as well. The East Village Studio Apartment comes from JPDA Architects, stretches over an area of 46 square meters (500 square feet) and was built as a little “nest” for the owners who also work here. It has all the utilities a common looking contemporary home has and dare we say a lot more. This original crib has storage space and shelves in the most unusual and unexpected places, reducing clutter and contributing to a clean and fresh interior design. The wood gives this home its warmth which is “intensified” by the friendly vegetation pots spread around the open studio.

    500 square feet is actually 46 square meters, not 152

    As Daniel, previously, I wanted to note that the 500 sq feet is much smaller then 152 sqm.

    Actually I’m taking the risk of supposing that most of the freshome.com readers live in apartments in the range of 50 to 150 sqm and the ideas involved in this project are highly usable to optimize the space usage in our own habitats.

    Very nice use of space, and a nice choice of materials/furniture ; )

    152 sq. meters is roughly 1.600 sq. feet.
    You probably meant 52 sq. meters which is roughly 550 sq. feet.

    that’s really great, but if you have an apartment where everything is tiny – including the ceiling height – the project becomes impossible (

    WoW Superb , it should be for a big family actually, I discussed with my parents, you should get some money and invest in a house like this, i think is a dream house..:X

    one more time got assured that human imagination is endless. Congratulations to all designers and whoever had a hand on such an incredible deal. From now on, you are under my controll:)

    Nice, a complete kitchen but no place to have dinner but on the couch..TV dinners it is then!

    Surely, if you had the vast amount of money required for remodelling on this scale, you’d buy a bigger place…?

  17. Wendy said:
    September 13, 2010

    This is very nice. I often wish I had the funds to do up my place with handy little niches like this. I do have to agree with Lizzie though, this is quite a pretty penny project and most people don’t invest that kind of money in studios. I’m thinking as a renter though, and someone who has half the space. I wish landlords invested like that in their units. Sigh.

  18. Wide World said:

    Lizzie and Wendy,

    In places like Hong Kong, people would most definitely be willing to invest the money on their small space, as the area is small and extremely developed and only the incredibly wealthy can afford to live in larger spaces. Condos that are tiny by your standards might go for millions there.

  19. Lizzie said:
    September 14, 2010

    Then it really is worth the investment. And kudos to the designer.

  20. September 26, 2010

    Looks fantastic | Great Design | Use of woods fabrics and color. Brilliant

    I’ve got a little cottage that I rent out that is about 500 square feet. Not big, but it’s okay for one or two people.

    Those stairs mixed with drawers and the lack of a bannister look like a paraplegic waiting to happen…

    This is sad. It looks amazing is because it is fresh to your mind. But, after a week then you should realize space does not grow. Living in a space this small is sad sad sad. People should not be trapped in space like this. What crime has you done to deserve this cage? How can people willingly cage themselves and get excited about it. Human evolved to this and not feel sad about themselves?

    That sleeping loft is pretty epic. I don’t like dark kitchen counters but that kitchen is nice so are the bathrooms. Overall a win. What a shame nobody that wants a small apartment will be able to afford it.

  27. Rebecca David said:
    September 27, 2010

    That’s good design. It anticipated almost all of the occupants’ need for a comfortable accomodation.
    Note to Chad Chen: Don’t feel sorry for people with this size apartment, it may be just their ‘ pied a terre” and it’s okay as long as they don’t hang out in their apartment all day.

    I most like the fact that they made good use of the vertical… so many places waste a lot of their overall volume to empty space.

  29. Kasandra said:
    September 28, 2010

    Don’t get it… Where does the bedroom space come from if the sealing is in another level or is it unused space? Or you sleep in your neighbour’s appartment who lives upstairs or what?

    I just love everything about about this design, very innovative and spacer saver.

  32. October 12, 2010

    This type of design would be good for students or for a rental suite. I really like how the white contrasts with the wood, makes it a very welcoming place.

  33. October 12, 2010

    Looks fantastic great Design thank you friend

    It an amazing looking appartment, but not at all small. in the Netherlands a large part of the population live in appartments of 46 square meters and smaller, and they’re usually 2 bedroom appartments

  37. January 14, 2011

    Neat blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your design. Thanks

    Well done fitting into a small space, but why do people want to live in such small boxes. Are they on a boat or in outer -space. It is a bad compromise. Much better to control population growth and have everyone live well in bigger spaces with natural light and fresh air. Once built structures are often around for a century or more (ie many generations). Make the world better for future generations, don’t cram people into boxes.

    why don’t you just remove the bump on top? anyone who lives in this apartment is probably willing to sacrifice the headroom in a room where they spend all their time laying down, anyway. i think it would be cool to put a curtain at the top of the stairs in front of the part of the bedroom that opens up to the living room, too. it would add some privacy and look really good if done right. maybe a bead curtain or bamboo would work?
