This 700 sq. ft. double-studio apartment in Barcelona is like nothing you have ever seen before because it’s designed to be shared by strangers if you wanted to. In fact, even two couples would be able to use the space. That’s the potential for 4 people in a 700 sq. ft. space. That’s one 700 sq. ft. apartment with two studios inside. The design has been created by Studio P10 and Miel Arquitectos.

It’s done by creating communal areas that consist of the entrance, dining, and kitchen in addition to private areas that can be opened or closed for privacy. In summary, there’s a communal kitchen. Then there are two studios with their own separate (and private) bathrooms.

I can see how designs like this can be used in big cities and even in university areas so that people can split the cost of housing while also getting to share resources with each other. What do you think? Can you see arrangements like this working? If so, for who? Would it work for you? Either way, please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!

Right now I’m sharing a rather large 915 sq. ft. small house that’s designed to be lived in by two roommates who are unrelated. This prefab house was built by students at University of Calgary and Mount Royal University.

So there are two bedrooms, two living rooms, and then a shared kitchen, dining room, and bathroom. Immediately I thought how it would probably be better for most people to share a living room instead of a bathroom, but I still thought this would be an interesting design to share with you.

It reminds me of a college dorm but bigger and more luxurious. There’s even separate outdoor space for each roommate in the floor plan. I’d definitely make some changes to this design to make it better but I still think it’s really nice. It would probably work well for young professionals right out of College. Please enjoy and if you’d like to please re-share below.
