Square metre challenge part 1: tiny bedroom for two

28 February 2016

Living small is the new living large. We challenged ourselves to make a rental bedroom for two as small as possible. Then we tested it! In the first episode of this series, we show how multifunctional, movable and layered solutions create storage and open floor space.

“I tried to see the possiblities instead of the limitations. This was especially a challenge because it’s a rental, and I didn’t want to drill so many holes in the walls.”
