Domestic Transformer: Accordian Apartment in Hong Kong

The New York Times 1.15.09

Nicknamed Domestic Transformer, Architect Gary Chang's small Hong Kong apartment can be manipulated into 24 different layouts within the 344-square-foot space. The New York Times shows us how an immense collection of sliding wall units, fold-down tables & chairs and a hydraulic Murphy bed made the tiny space into a multi-functional masterpiece...

The large windows are yellow-tinted — washing the apartment in an odd sunny glow, reflected in the shiny black granite floor. By moving different walls and folding furniture, Chang can reveal a massive wall of books and storage, a large Duravit tub, a small kitchen, a steam shower, a video game room, a bedroom, library and even a hammock.
