A Barcelona micro-unit concept brings together a micro live/work space — and then doubles it for two.
The 700 square-foot concept has a shared kitchen, living and dining space, while each of the two tenants has their own room, according to dezeen. The rooms have bathrooms that are open to the each of the resident’s private space.
The design takes advantage of the apartment’s high ceilings to add a small loft over the bed for more living space.
MIEL Architects and Studio P10 designed the space, called Salva46. In a statement published by ArchDaily, the architects said they designed the unit so natural light could move throughout the space without impacting each tenant’s privacy.
“During the day each inhabitant can enclose and secure their space without blocking the traverse of natural light, while during the night, both can isolate and cocoon the units by sliding the solid doors,” they wrote. “The clean modern lines of industrial parquet contrasts with the cracks and crevasses of the 19th century exposed brickwork.”
At 350 square feet per tenant, the living areas are small, just not as micro as these shared micro-spaces we wrote about earlier this summer.
