Small Apartment Incorporates Mezzanine Bedroom To Maximize On Space

Designed by 3XA architects, this small apartment maximises it’s use of space while creating distinct ‘rooms’ within an open plan layout.


Measuring just 29 square meters (312 square feet) the designers have managed to include a kitchen, bathroom, living room, study, and semi-mezzanine bedroom.  The ceiling height of 3.7 meters made it impossible to create a two level space. Instead the architects opted to create a mezzanine-like space, which acts as a sleeping loft that’s accessible by a staircase that doubles as a bookshelf.



Below the ‘bedroom’ you’ll find the bathroom and a 1.85 meter high hallway that’s lined with storage space. The interior features accents of what appears to be OSB giving the small apartment a hint of industrial architecture.
