NEVER TOO SMALL ep.13 27m2 Tiny Apartment Design – Darlinghurst Apartment


The design of the apartment was all
about containing the amenities for life to the smallest possible area and to
provide a bigger space for living The apartments located in a building
called Ballina which is an art deco 1920s Heritage listed property. There’s 27
units in the this block I first moved into this apartment at the beginning of
2014 when I got the apartment there was a little kitchen in its own separate
nook we decided to be a good idea to put the kitchen or living space and a
bedroom where the kitchen was The apartment was really designed for two
people so the idea was that would function like a one-bedroom apartment so
the bedroom can be completely closed off we have this little pocket window
integrated into the storage wall so the idea is when you walk in the front door
and that window is opening you can still see out the view and the apartment is
significally wider than just the width of the living space. We built the bedroom
on a platform to delineate the space between the living and the sleeping area
that also allowed us to get plumbing to needed to go and install some shoe
drawers. There’s storage underneath the bed there’s storage on top of the bed and
there’s a little recessed shelf which acts as a bedside table and has lights
and powerpoints and those windows along with the windows
in the living space were left in their original condition so the external
facade remains untouched Below the TV there’s a little desk which can fold up
and allows you to use the TV as a second monitor and we included a 24 bottle wine
storage cupboard so we didn’t want the kitchen to feel like kitchen we hid all the appliances included in the oven behind the little pocket door we put a
drying rack above the sink so that you can put your dishes away to dry we’ve
got a blade wall which is made out joinery and integrates a spice rack on
the kitchen side and as you come into the apartment that’s got the intercom
hidden away inside the little key shelf to put stuff on so. We completely hit the
bathroom behind one of the sliding doors on the main wall when we first got it
there was a massive bath which we ripped out and was replaced at the shower and a
washing machine Good design is not only about making a smaller footprint work harder but it’s also creating a really great quality of life and a sense of
luxury in a tighter space and inevitably that provides sustainable solutions for
our cities. Thanks for watching subscribe to our

  1. Get a bigger house? Lots of land out there. Humans shouldn't be forced to live in such tiny quarters paying exorbitant prices. They give us what we collectively are willing to pay and live with.

  2. So you have to keep your cabinets open just to use your appliances? I feel like that would be a bit of a cleaning issue and a minor inconvenience for sale of a sleek design

  3. this could appeal to someone who perhaps travels alot or has a busy social life. clean, functional, uncluttered but sterile and unwelcoming it strikes me for someone who spends much of their time at home. an easy place to unwind in but short on personality or individual distinction.

  4. i mean … in ur head you know that this is supposed to look great but in reality the practical features are more playful then usefull and create a feel of overloading the space with "design"

  5. Lovely space, some small credits should go to the recurring cast of Aesop dispensers in these videos:)

  6. I'm guessing this is an owned apartment (condo), rather than a rental, and therefore can be re-designed as you have. Nice space.

  7. I have figured out how to make these tours more satisfying. At the beginning they showed the layout & the change – every time they change rooms, show the layout again & where they're going. +why are all the minimalist fold-out, hide the storage, slide the walls apts stark white?

  8. One thing I definitely understand from watching these is that … To be an architect you have to be an alcoholic… A wine rack and booze by the door… Come home first ting is take a gulp??

  9. This is one of my favourites, how he integrated so much into it. But the video cuts through fast, a tiny apartment video doesn't have to be tiny.

  10. great apartment but I just don't get why so many Aussies sound like they're asking a question when making a statement. stop that little uptick at the end of a sentence!!

  11. Why do these people never prioritize an office area? Have these people even heard of a proper desk with a proper chair?

  12. Fantastic innovation….next generation level ongoing work…..how leave and learn in small living space I am impressed and excited….can I ask ….can I learn and practice this project I am so interested please reply thank you

  13. This appartment is for people with no hobbies but watching tv or something. Too small to live. Just to eat, sleep, shower, repeat.

  14. ive watched a couple of these small apartment videos but i really like this one. it looks pleasing to the eyes and yet very livable. i can picture myself having this kinda house.

  15. this is a much better design and usage of space versus the other Darlinghurst apartment with the bed smack-dab in the middle of the whole apartment and taking up half the space.

  16. very finish style, the dish drying rack, the shower next to the wc – divided by the curtain, a lot of cabinets in the walls (or almost everywere)

  17. the reason I could never live in a big city, the designs are interesting use of small spaces but, these just seem like un livable cages no cooking space at all a cramped bedroom so depressing  . in cities where only the wealthy can afford anything like LA  and the rest live in places like this so sad to me.

  18. I like this interior design once again from the same architect.
    I like the way he designed some kinda of secret room and we will be amazed that there are more space to look at.
    This time around, I like there is washing machine for once in his design. The other interior design from this architect didn't put or show washing machine, so I was kinda bummed but still I like it

  19. I used to live in a 24sqm studio as a student. Would have loved to live in one like this. So functional and open. Only thing I would change is the oven. Would not mind having that showing, would also be much easier to access and not having it stain the inside of the cupboard it's in here.

  20. I am in love with this space, the fact no one knows where the bedroom or bathroom has been hid by the sliding panels.

  21. it's nice but tbh if I'm living in that small of a space I need every inch of storage I can get, and having a cabinet specified for wine seems unnecessary
