While we’re no strangers here to tiny spaces, this crazy 4-story micro apartment in Tokyo is something totally new! The apartment consists of 4 stories — two of which are a micro wet-bath and a twin-sized loft area. The other two stories are just 6.5 feet x 6.5 feet and act as the kitchen and living room/entryway.

The temperature difference between the top story (loft) and the bottom (bathroom) is quite remarkable, meaning you could adjust your sleeping area based on the weather outside. There is a built-in tiny kitchen with a hot plate, sink and mini fridge, and even a root cellar! What do you think?

This is the “All I Own House” designed by PKMN Architectures for Yolanda.

On the outside you can see this is a standard single-family home in Madrid, but when you walk inside you’ll find an amazing multi-functional space. By using storage shelves on casters, Yolanda can create a living room, bedroom and kitchen by sliding her walls across the floor. Where’s the bed? It’s tucked in one of the units and folds out Murphy-style.

Check out the pictures and then enjoy the video to see her home “in action.”

This is GRAU.ZERO Architecture’s Modern Apartment Makeover in Aveiro, Portugal.

The Portuguese architecture firm, led by Sérgio Nobre, designed this small space (about 616 sq. ft.) from an outdated existing apartment that’s long and thin. Although currently unfurnished, the interior features bright white walls, fun corners and zig-zagged walls, and a ton of open space. They provided the floor plan so you can get a feel for the house as a whole.

This tiny apartment story is a guest post by Sally and Nikita of Yuppies In Paradise

We are a young couple who downsized from 1,000 square feet into a 400 sq. ft. tiny apartment.

Part of our reason for downsizing our life was to save money so we could quit our jobs and travel around the globe for a few years, which we are about to do in a few months.

You can enjoy the full tour of our tiny apartment and re-share it below if you want to. Thank you!

I think you will absolutely love this small guest cottage.

Perfect size for out-of-town guests visiting for a while.

The bright white walls and windows make this small space seem huge!

Alisha and her husband, Graham of Fairfax, CA decided it was time to renovate their studio cottage.

This 320 sq ft guest cottage has a vintage California laid back charm to it. Their friends often ask when they can move in.

Alisha says her biggest challenge with the renovation was convincing her husband to let her paint everything white.

I think they made a great choice because this guest cottage is super cute!
