You can’t really appreciate all the space you have when you’re living in a large home. You need to experience living in a tiny space to understand how valuable every inch of space really is and to open your mind to new solutions. Only then you can be creative. A perfect example for that is this tiny apartment. It can be found in the fishing village of Camogli located in the province of Genoa, Italy.
The apartment is called Harbour Attic, a very appropriate name for it considering the location, the views and the structure. It was designed by Gosplan.The team tried to make the most out of the space there was available.
Even though the rooms are very small, they are also decorated nicely. There’s a nice balance between the space and everything in it. The limited space was an incentive for the designers to think out of the box. They came up with unusual solutions to solve the storage problem and also to make the rooms feel airy.
It’s a great example that shows us that any tiny space can be comfortable if you know how to look at it. The goal for this unusual project was to make two bedrooms, a studio, a living room, a kitchen and a bathroom. The gambrel roof didn’t make things easier, especially considering the limited floor surface. However, the challenge was not impossible.
This custom-designed apartment has a clever interior. There are no unnecessary pieces of furniture and everything that could be mounted on the wall rather than occupy floor space is already on the wall. The kitchen is small and occupies only a corner of the open-plan room. There are no visual delimitations between these spaces. It’s rather a shared space with a flexible and multi-functional structure. The décor is simple and space-efficient.
