Minimalism in Madrid – A Compact Apartment

This compact apartment has been designed by Beriot Bernardini Arquitectos, and aims to take advantage of the limited space by incorporating as many multifunctional living areas as possible. The majority of the functional spaces (kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and closets) are contained towards the front end, freeing up the rest of the home for the less permanent areas (dining room, living room etc).” – Niall

Tiny Apartment in Barcelona

A cleverly designed apartment packs a lot of function into a small space. Lots of great ideas here for tiny house interior design.

“When photographer Christian Schallert isn’t busy cooking, dressing, sleeping or eating, his small 24 square meter (258 square feet) flat appears to be an empty cube. To use a piece of furniture, he has to build it. Situated in Barcelona, Spain’s hip Born district, the tiny apartment is a remodeled pigeonhole loft (when Schallert first toured the apartment it was home to pigeons). Schallert collaborated with his friend, architect Barbara Appolloni, to come up with this unique design scheme, taking six months to complete. Christian says its design was inspired by the space-saving furniture aboard boats, as well as the clean lines of a small Japanese home.”

Spanish Holiday Container Home

A luxurious small container home sits atop others in Palma, Majorca, Spain – and you can rent it through airbnb.com.

“In a quiet street just five minutes away from the attractions of Palma, is the Container House. As the name suggests the house is made from shipping container modules, which makes this a really unusual place to stay.”
