Space-Saving Solutions in a Family's Tiny Apartment

The thought of even one person living in 410 square feet can seem daunting, but this tiny apartment in Australia is home to a couple and their small child. Using several smart ideas, they've carved out distinct spaces that aren't short on function or style.

The redesign was completed by architect Anthony Gill, and there are space-saving solutions applicable to any home. The main feature is the bookshelf that runs across the middle of the apartment. It serves as a room divider between the living room and the kitchen, and it adds storage and a counter to the latter. Another clever feature of the apartment is the parents' bed, which pulls out into the living space and stows away beneath their daughter's platform bed in her room. I suspect their clothing is stored in the closed portion over their bed.
