320 Sq. Ft. Hong Kong Apartment Means No Room For Clutter

A Hong Kong Architect Gary Chang designed a series of moveable walls to create 24 different rooms within his 330 sq. ft. Hong Kong apartment.


It sounds crazy and impossible, but once you watch the video, it makes total sense.

The sliding walls are layered like sheets of paper standing on edge. When the walls are stacked you are in the living room which converts to the master bedroom with a drop-down Murphy style bed. Slide a wall & you are in the quite functional kitchen with a fold out table that looks like it could seat 4. Slide that wall and you are in the bathroom/dressing area. Fold down the guest bed to cover the bathtub and you have a second bedroom. And its done in a very well designed fashion. It's not unattractive in the least.

Architect Chang purchased the apartment from his parents, and here's the craziest part of this story: As a child he lived  in this apartment, with his parents, 3 sisters and a tenant. It was divided into 3 bedrooms, a living room, a dining room & a kitchen. Remember, this apartment is only 330 sq. ft. It boggles the mind.

While I think it would be difficult to live in such a small space (he lives alone), there is something very appealing about the lack of clutter. There's little space for all the stuff I think I need, but probably could get along without just fine.

Its a very "green" way to live, and that's appealing, too. And I'm inspired by his creative use of space.

Uh Oh! I feel another clutter purge coming on :o))
