1. Movable apartment.

This apartment literally shifts and moves to suit your needs. With plywood panels, the one-room home offers everything one might need, as well as plenty of privacy. Here we see the home semi-open with the bed exposed to the left, and the kitchen to the right.

2. Glass walls for an open appearance.

This studio dwelling has been opened up with a space-saving design. Although compact, the home feels surprisingly roomy thanks to the chic furniture, all-white color palette and impressive glass partition that separates the bedroom from the living room.

3. Adding usable partitions.

The architects and designers of this smart European apartment have incorporated dividers and room partitions that offer storage as well as privacy. And have a look at the small library, placed next to the door.

4. Working with your floor plan.

In this compact home, the designers have opted to utilize the linear shape of the space. In doing this they've saved space within the apartment, ensuring the layout feels open and roomy. 

5. A surprising mezzanine.

The mezzanine in this apartment certainly saves space! Without an exterior patio of their own, this one ensures the occupants have a place to sit, relax and unwind.

6. Re-thinking space.

This ultra-compact apartment has redesigned the standard shape and form of a home, opting to include the kitchen island as a piece of multi-functional furniture that assists in many different and helpful ways.

7. When less is more.

In larger loft style apartments, it's often easy to cram too much into the same space. This design saves space by keeping everything minimal. In doing this the home feels private yet open, with a serene, industrial aesthetic.

8. Central columns for multiple uses.

The central column in this home has been utilized in multiple ways to hold the television as well as enhance the overall ambiance. The floor plan is functional and interesting, showing us that a lot can be done when you apply a versatile and creative mindset.
