iF DTA 2017 winners - Micro Apartments

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD 2017 winners: Micro Apartments

In Europe and Asia, small apartments are a necessity: often the space in metropolitan regions is only sufficient for one or two room homes. In North America, small houses have become hugely popular, often for reasons of economy. In all cases, small homes are cheaper and easier to build than larger ones. People are finding that not only are these spaces 'big enough' -- they also have a charm of their own.

The challenge for architects and designers is to fit the most functionality, comfort and luxury into the smallest space possible. What makes a small apartment perfect? Find out.
