Friends! One of my many loves is architecture and design, specifically form and function in a livable space. This youtube video, from Christian Schallert in Barcelona, is practically the epitome of this design concept.
My ideal space: not too big, clean lines, open floorplan, design elements, multi-function furniture. He's lucky he's in Barcelona. He probably doesn't need much climate control and he gets plenty of air movement. I can see how the floor plan would be perfect for a single person. Neil and I couldn't cut it. We would be too messy. I do like the idea of being able to shut things away so quickly and how the small square footage discourages accumulation of unneeded stuff.
I would want to add more sustainability functions, like a rain water tank, windmill and/or solar panels. Maybe two rooms like this could work, with an outdoor living space slash garden? What do you think Neil? We could swing this in Manhattan. ;)
