A small area apartment, this tiny home was designed to provide a memorable accommodation
experience for two style-seeking Budapest travellers. The centrepiece of the space is an eye-catching elevated level solution, which was built with the usage of plywood. It not only brings a natural touch into the modern chic apartment, but acts as a functional puzzle game involving the double bed, the storages and all the kitchen equipment. Our intention was to create a light and highly customizable space, with maximum comfort for a short stay.


The whole project started with the idea to extend the flat neigbooring the small apartment when it became available for buying. Then AIRBNB started to boom in Budapest ( and also the city is very popular among turists this year ) and the owner came to the idea to create a minimal program airbnb flat but something that covers all the needs of 2 visitors for a short term stay. In 30 sqm you have limited options to creat design , especially in this flat where structural walls ( between the bath and the living room ) has created even less possibiliteis for us to work with. So we decided to take the challenge from the furniture side: We have designed a multifunctional storage- sleeping object of plywood the solved the main purpose of the project. The item that contains the bed has a standard size of 3 times a 60x60x90 modul for optional use ( wardrobe, frige, washing machine) The kitchen has the minimal requirments for the average turistic needs, atteched to the central sleeing unit. The idea of the plywood wall system is to have a modular wall system with adjustable shelfs for different local- hungarian art/design pieces, books, home accesories that can color the space, and are unique for forigners but are at the same time functionally readjustable if needed.
If you are staying for a short period you dont necessary want to strore your clothes in a closed cabinet but to use them practically and fast. So the metal pipe installed on the opposite side with the plywood wall is for a 'express' use, the rest of your stuff you can put in the storages of the bed.
We tryed to keep natural light in the bathroom to so we kept the old entrance of the bathroom and created a sandblasted glass window between the bathroom and the living room.
The budget was quiet low so we optimized the cost of the renovation to keep it low and invested more in furniture and accesories.
The flat has become very popular in the last months and is available for booking if someone books long in advance.
