Christian Schaller's Transformer Apartment: Living in 258 Square Feet

Design, ChristianSchallert, apartment

Barcelona-based photographer Christian Schaller's rooftop apartment crams six rooms into 258 square feet. Like the Hong Kong Efficiency Apartment Tori shared a ways back, Christian's bathroom, kitchen, living room, bedroom, dining room and porch emerge when needed from cupboards, cabinets and compartments. The kitchen unfolds from the wall, the bed/couch emerge from under the porch and various other amenities pop and swivel out from their nesting places.

Watch the video below for a full tour.
