Unique Condos: Tiny Apartment Converted Into 24-Room ‘Transformer’ House

May 6, 2010

If you think a 600 sq.ft condo in Mississauga or downtown Toronto calls for creative use of space, check out this amazing apartment in Hong Kong.

Gary Chang, a Hong Kong architect has converted his tiny apartment into a “domestic transformer” capable of becoming 24 different rooms.  Like most people in the densely populated Chinese city, Gary Chang found himself a bit short of space. But rather than feel cramped, he gave his 344 square foot home an ingenious makeover.

Gary installed a series of sliding walls along with flip-down compartments and fold-out furniture and amenities, which now means he can make his living space into whatever he wants.

For example, when he needs to cook something, Gary simply pulls on his TV to slide the wall forward and allow access to a 2-meter-wide kitchen. When he wants a bath he tugs his bookcase to reveal a linen closet, which he then pulls forward to open his bathroom. If he has guests, the bath even has a fold-down mattress to become a spare bed.

In total, the eco-apartment — which has one windowed wall and mirrors on the ceiling to disguise the sliding-wall mechanism — can be made into 24 different rooms, from kitchen or bedroom, to movie-screening room.

Speaking of his creation, Gary said, “The house transforms and I’m always here. I don’t move. The house moves for me.”
