The 29 Square Meters project is the makeover of a small flat to maximize space, completed in 2012 by architecture studio 3XA, located in Wroclaw, Poland. As the name suggests, the entire apartment only covers an area of 29 square meters, which is equivalent to 312 square feet!

29 square meters is a rather small space to live in. Therefore the priority of this makeover was to maximize the space and to create an independent bedroom.

The ceiling at 3.7 meters didn’t allow the designer to create two equivalent levels, but it was possible to build a semi-mezzanine. Above the bathroom and the hallway there is a huge bed area 1.35 meters high, whereas above the wardrobe there is a passage 1.85 meters high.

Moreover, to increase space, the living room, kitchen and dining area are combined into one room. Additionally, to deceive senses, a blind door was put on one of the walls.

The slight industrial features of the painted brick walls and composite wood accents make for a clean living space, one that feels much larger than it actually is.  The home’s entryway passes a bathroom on one side and wall storage hidden behind curtains on the other.  It opens into a large room with a restored wood floor, comfortable seating, a desk space and a bookshelf staircase on the left.

It wraps around into a kitchen and dining area with modern appliances and attractive hanging lamps.  A loft-style sleeping area peers over the flat from above, using the vertical space to squeeze more room into the 29 meter volume.  In total, it’s a marvelous use of such a small space, one that makes small living a charming endeavor.
