The concept of the ‘micro apartment’ is still a relatively new phenomenon – yet interest in the minimalist living spaces are definitely growing. The main reason for the growth in interest has to do with the increase of inflation in the housing market, and while definitely the more affordable options, micro-apartment living is not without its challenges. Cometa Architects renovated this 56 square metre space to demonstrate just how versatile and practical even the smallest of living spaces can be. Modelled with small size naval architecture designs in mind, the essentials for simplistic living are all here.
A compact wooden cabin where the closet, toilet, laundry and other installations are located, while he kitchen area and the bathtub are segregated into a separate ‘white space’ area. An exterior terrace-space makes up for the somewhat limited interior, and adds an element of environmental living to the significantly modern concept by inviting natural light and sea breezes inwards.
This apartment is located near Barcelona’s Olympic Marina, making it a great central option for busy working professionals. Cometa Architects are innovators of design, a value which is clearly reflected in this Micro Apartment development and across their various other property offerings in Spain, Italy, Greece and the USA. The micro apartment development in Barcelona is a truly modern twist on the high-end luxury developments happening elsewhere in the city, and one which suggests a shift in the ownership of large-scale housing developments towards a more sustainable and eco-friendly minimalist living.
