Architectural design studio MihaDesign came up with an idea for an innovative use of space when they were asked to renovate a 770 sq ft apartment for a family with 4 children in Japan. Named nr1977, it is now a one room apartment with two large cubes. One consists of partitioned bed spaces for the children, with stairs leading up to a low-ceiling desk space for studying or reading with your feet dangling down above the beds. The other features a bed for the husband and wife with storage and a play area above it.
The unique design for this apartment may be used in other homes as MihaDesign have received many requests from other families in need of space-saving ideas.
