When there’s a shortage of affordable housing people are forced into creativity and the solutions that these situations help create usually turn out to be pretty amazing. Like this 387 square feet storage unit turned into a micro home by architect Karin Matz based in Stockholm.

For 30 years the unit had been used for storage. In the 1980s the previous owner had started to renovate it into an apartment but the owner became sick and unfortunately passed away. So up until recently the unit was left untouched.

Instead of completely gutting the place Matz decided that the finished product would tell the story. So she focused on renovating one key area and left the rest of the space to look as original as possible. This way in many parts of the home you can actually see how it used to look before it was a completed home.
