Spanish architecture firm Elii renovated an attic space in Madrid and transformed it into a small apartment with various secret spaces and hidden compartments.

Called Didomestic by the firm, the project is a 57 square-meter space with a central core consisting of a staircase, shelves and a larder, and two side strips that house functional elements like a kitchen, bathroom, storage space and domestic appliances.

The apartment has moving transparent panels that can be used to create different spaces or rooms as needed. The panels can be moved to create an extra room, separate the living space from the kitchen, or open up the whole space.

Secret trap doors and storage space are concealed in the ceilings and floors. These can be opened, popped out, or lowered down to reveal furniture or functional surfaces and other objects like a suspended hammock, a tea room, and a dressing table.

The apartment is an example of what design and architectural firms can do to create flexible home dwellings. It also shows how people can make the most out of a small space.
