330 square foot “mini-mansion”

5 Jan

So I took a pretty long break over the holidays. Hope you all had a good break! The following is the first post by my friend Meredith. She’s going to Argentina this semester so hopefully we will get some posts from abroad!



City life may be exciting and splendid, but that all comes at a price. For most, they are subjected to cramped living arrangements. In Hong Kong, where apartment style living seems to be the only means of living, green architect Gary Chang has transformed his 330 square foot apartment into a 24-roomed apartment. How is this possible? Through Chang’s construction of layered pull out walls, panels and furniture. Chang has managed to create a practically unlivable space into a “mini-mansion.”

    This is amazing! Hopefully others around Hong Kong and other highly populated areas can start using this system.

    Meredith, I’ll be in Argentina this semester, too. Where are you staying?

    Hey! No way, I’ll be in the neighborhood of Belgrano in Buenos Aires. Where are you staying?

      I’m living in Palermo but going to the University of Belgrano. Are you studying there too/what kind of program are you doing?
