Family of 6 in Small Space, Town House in Denmark

See the blogpost: http://www.godownsize.com/family-1000-sq-ft-townhouse-denmark-aarhus/ This sweet family of 6 lives in a small townhouse in Aarhus, Denmark. Join us for a house tour, and get inspired from their solutions. They have chosen to downsize, in order to get more time together. The kids live in two rooms. The two smallest kids (girl and boy) live together and the two bigger girls live together as well in only 65 sq ft (6 m2). Lots of cool storage solutions, and ways to live small and optimize the space for compact living.

Tiny Studio Apartment | With Wall Bed and Green Garden (250 sq.ft.)

We stayed in this cute little apartment during our stay in The Netherlands in April, and we really liked it. It has everything you need including a small private green garden and a cute wall bed, that folds down nicely above the sofa table. For the same reason the sofa table has wheels, and is made very low to fit under the homemade wall bed. The bathroom has a rain shower, a very nice touch for a tiny space. The area around the toilet is very well designed with space for towels and other stuff. The door that leads from the bathroom to the kitchen / livingroom is a glass door, that lets lots of light into the apartment space. A great idea for small apartments, because small spaces like this need lots of light in order to feel spacey. The kitchen is just big enough to cook a dinner and make a cup of coffee, before your day starts and you head out in the city. When you do the dishes, you can put fold down a small drying rack on the wall next to the sink. The owner has chosen to have a full cook top which takes up quite a lot of space, so some of the kitchenware is placed in the cabinets in the entrance. You enter the apartment through a narrow alley way from the street, where you can have your bikes and stroller. As you open the door, you find 5 hangers for jackets and bags just behind the door, and you walk right into the main room, which is the kitchen and the living room. These two spaces are separated by a slim shelving unit, that also holds the TV and other stuff. From the living room you can open up two beautiful french doors (glass doors), in order to enter the terrace / tiny garden. This little garden space has two comfortable chairs and it’s the perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee in the afternoon or evening. It has a green tree-like plant, and the floor is covered with fake grass, that adds a lot of atmosphere to the space. The house / apartment is found in Den Haag (The Hague), a beautiful city in Northern Europe.

Robert and Samantha decided they want to build a tiny house. So...they got to work. And fortunately for us, they had their camera ready to go throughout the process. Sit back and enjoy while we watch this young married couple whose "combined construction experience is relatively minuscule” take their tiny house ambitions into their own hands.

Amsterdam hotel softens line between home, work & incubator

Aimed at a growing group of “global nomads”, Amsterdam’s Zoku is trying to avoid the hotel label and instead provide a home/office for their not-guests-but-“neighbors”. Each 25m2 (269 ft2) micro-apartment has a lofted bed, enclosed by slatted wooden doors and accessed by a retractable staircase so it can be closed off when entertaining or hosting meetings. There is an under-bed desk, a kitchen and even a ceiling-mounted gymnast’s hoops for in-room exercise. “We used basically every cubic centimeter of the loft,” explains Zoku co-founder Marc Jongerius. “We spent 5 to 6 years really getting all the details right. We started by doing 150 interviews with people from the target audience. The research that we did we hear from them that if they stay in a self-catered apartment they lack the social space, they lack contact with people. This is what we created upstairs.” Upstairs you can borrow musical instruments, CNC print, play ping pong, work at long, shared desks or reconfigurable conference rooms (titled “Not a Bored Room”) or eat at communal tables. “Zoku is a Japanese word it means family, tribe or clan” explains Jongerius. “I think we're one of the first hotels in the world to have a community manager on the payroll and their only job is to connect residents.” Zoku has also partnered with WeWork in their Amsterdam space for those looking for more formal work spaces. https://livezoku.com/zoku-loft/

A month ago we visited this cool tiny studio apartment in Amsterdam. This space is called Zoku, and it is a huge building with more than 100 small apartments for tiny living, and this is what they look like.

They are designed for online nomads, and people who travel frequently, to have a micro apartment space to dwell inside the city center of Amsterdam. It's connected to a shared office space / co-working space in the heart of Amsterdam, to make it easy to network and work during the stay. These tiny apartments can be rented short or long-term, making them the perfect substitute to hotel rooms.

The architects and idea people behind this concept really thought this design through. The whole idea of the sliding staircase that leads up to the loft space is just genius.

You find everything you need from a tiny bathroom / toilet, kitchen, dining area and a sleeping loft, you can access from the sliding staircase. The loft part of the apartment doesn't seem like it's there when the blinds are closed.
