Architect Kumiko Ouchi wanted to transform her partner’s 1970s apartment into a truly beautiful and functional space. She did an excellent job hiding anything unsightly while still including the necessary things (kitchen electronics, books, a litter box) in her overall design.
By taking out the walls in the apartment and removing a bedroom, she was able to create an open concept space with a large kitchen that still afforded privacy in the bedroom and bathroom. The hallway doubles as office space, and there are two beautiful balconies for plants.
This is a small loft apartment in Los Angeles, California. It looks like the perfect place for a visit to Hollywood, doesn’t it? Yes, it’s available via Airbnb.
I also really like the studio layout. If you’re interested in downsizing to a smaller space, but are not quite ready for a tiny house, a studio apartment like this could be a great transition. Have you ever considered a studio kind of like this? What’s your favorite city?
This is the story and tour of a reader’s 220-sq.-ft. tiny apartment in Los Angeles.
It’s a small space with an open-layout, 12-ft. high ceilings, and a lovely balcony. It didn’t come with a kitchen, but Paul put a kitchenette together that’s simple, affordable, and functional (see below). What do you think about living tiny and simply in an apartment or studio kind of like this?
This is an artist’s 753 sq. ft. workshop w/ a 300 sq. ft. tiny apartment within which makes it perfect for a live/work situation. How would you like to live with your own workspace and tiny home within the same structure? Do you think that would be useful for you?
The building was built in 2008 and I bought it in the pre build period. The loft was originally just a mezzanine space of which I’ve added hardwood floors, a kitchen, cabinetry, storage closets and a sleeping loft. Yes a loft in the loft. Loft squared.
This YO! Home gives you some of the functionality of a larger home inside of a studio space by using multifunctional furniture and designs, like how the bed that hides into your ceiling and how the dining room hides into your floor.
It even features a desk that converts into an extra bed, a kitchen that hides away when you’re not using it, and built-in floor storage. If you ever want to find yourself in a city, is a design like this something you would consider?

Since the apartment has 11.5ft ceilings, Aiko was able to take advantage of the vertical space too. So the bedroom hovers over the kitchen, and the bathroom is slightly elevated with storage underneath.
