This 309-Square-Foot Micro Apartment Has A Home Theater, Full Kitchen, And Even A Guest Bedroom

Hong Kong-based architects LAAB have just completed an incredible home that maximizes every inch of this 309 sq ft (28.7 sq m) flat in Hong Kong’s Central district.
The clients had a long wish list that included: full kitchen, bathtub, home cinema, gym, storage—and cat-friendly features for their three furry roommates. After 40 iterations, LAAB came up with a solution that is both functional and elegant.

Hong Kong is one of the world’s most expensive cities where an average square foot costs about US$1,416. The clients, Andy Knight and Michelle Tennant, had a decision to make: purchase a flat with about 90 more square feet, or completely redesign and renovate this 309 square foot apartment which was in the location they loved.

To realise their ambitious plans, the team at LAAB had to think beyond static spaces. They began considering time as a factor, eventually designing the space around a “Form Follows Time” philosophy, which means that spaces open and close depending on the purposes needed at that particular time.
