Lego-style apartment transforms into infinite spaces

When Christian Schallert isn’t cooking, dressing, sleeping or eating, his 24 square meter (258 square feet) apartment is an empty cube. To use a piece of furniture, he has to build it.

To sleep, he rolls his bed out from under the balcony, his stairs become become bedside tables & he can even swing his tv out from the wall.

To dine, he lowers a plank from the wall, his flower-stand becomes a support & his stairs become a bench.

To cook, he clicks a spot on his vast wall of click-able furniture, & a spring-loaded door swings up to reveal an instant kitchen: double-burner, dishwasher, sink, countertop & microwave oven. The full-sized refrigerator & freezer click open just alongside.

Located in Barcelona’s hip Born district, the tiny apartment is a remodeled pigeon loft. Christian (a Barcelona-based photographer) says its design was inspired by the space-saving furniture aboard boats, as well as the clean lines of a small Japanese home.

While there’s undoubtedly more work involved in constructing & deconstructing your dining room/kitchen/bedroom every day or meal (one of his friends has dubbed it “G.I. Joe’s flat”), Christian claims it helps keep him in shape.

[Note: Christian recently moved out of his apartment after getting into a relationship & realizing while it’s a tremendous bachelor pad, it’s not as ideal for two.]

In this video, Christian shows us his lego-style home & invites a few friends over to cook & lunch with him in his small space:
