The Berlin Micro Apartment

Berlin-based architects Spamroom and John Paul Coss have completed the renovation og an Art Nouveau "micro apartment" dating back to the early 1900s. Measuring just 21 square-meters, the apartment presented quite a challenge to the architects, who needed to address the modern needs of the occupants and redistribute the rooms in a way which felt both practical and balanced. The team decided to best way to approach the project was to completely gut the apartment and start with a blank canvas, allowing them to work without the constraints of dodgy renovations made during the last century. The result is a light and airy space with a cosy sleeping mezzanine, storage room, a kitchen, two-square-meter bathroom, and even a small living room/entertaining area.
