How to live and work in a 20 square meter space? Climbing, almost, through the walls.

Apartamento de Mycc (0) [1600x1200]The architecture studio Mycc defines it as «a singular urban shelter». And they are right. The solution they have provided for this 20 square meter apartment, but with one hundred cubic meter in longitudinal section, is at least original. They have taken full advantage of height to include the most number of rooms possible, to which one can access through wall staircases if necessary. «It reminds of old computer games», says the studio.

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.

Apartamento de Mycc (2) [1600x1200]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.

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.
