How to live and work in a 20 square meter space? Climbing, almost, through the walls.
And yes, in a way it also reminds of Japanese capsule hotels, but in this case as a Spanish house version since the apartment is located in Madrid. Naturally, there is only room for one person, two at the most. Nevertheless, its inhabitants must exude dynamism and creativity to get used to such a space significantly marked by the different levels.
The Madrid-based studio Mycc was inspired by those light frameworks at different levels which are accessed almost by jumping from one to another. In this case through different type of staircases and wall mounted ladders. As a result, rooms are fully defined between each other but at the same time they are visually connected, including the bathroom.
“Climbing up to the kitchen or going down to the bedroom gives a deep sensation of change and a different perception of the place, either of the individual spaces or of the house as a whole”, explains the studio.
From the living room, one can go down to the bedroom or climb to the studio/chillout/interior terrace using an industrial wall mounted ladder. The bathroom can also be accessed from here, located at an inferior level and provided with a bespoke bathtub.
White dominates the whole space, spreading luminosity and the feeling of roominess. Materials and finishing touches are simple, contributing to the lightness breathed in the atmosphere.
