SMALL IS BIG Or at least it might be. Here's an exceptional space which proves that 13 does not have to be unlucky, and 13m2 can accommodate everything a city maverick needs.
Work, studies, going out with friends, concerts, exhibitions, cinema or eating out. Life in a big city absorbs so much that many young people are redefining the term 'housing'.
- For me, primarily it was a bedroom. Plus, let's say, a storage space - says SzymonHanczar, a designer of the 13m2 studio flat where he lived for several years. - I didn't want a spacious apartment which would involve plenty of time to take care of. On the other hand - despite the small space – it was not my intention to give up comfort and functionality. So it was really a unique challenge.
The effect that was achieved is unique as well. Thanks to the proper arrangements it was possible to fit a small kitchenette, a bathroom, a bedroom on the mezzanine and even a hammock for lovers of having their heads in the clouds. Of course - as it's a prime location for a city slicker - there is a bike space. Everything is maintained in bright colours which visually expands the space. To break the minimalism there is a 'Young Poland' style leather carpet placed on the floor.
All of this adds up to a welcoming, aesthetic and surprisingly functional space.
