273 Square Foot Tiny Apartment for a Family

This 273ft2/22m2 apartment in Warsaw is home for a small family, and although space is scarce the apartment doesn’t feel cramped.  Storage and bed is combined in a big box and there is easy access to the loftbed (even for a dog) because there’s a proper staircase leading up to the bed.
