Interesting video: Apartment packs a whole house into 258 square feet

From Sally Schneider: I found myself riveted by this video ofphotographer Christian Schallert‘s 258-square-foot Barcelona apartment (approximately 11 feet by 23 feet): a former pigeon loft re-envisioned by designerBarbara Appolloni. (Check out the “before” shots in the beginning!) I’ve seen this clever configuration of cubes likened to Legos, but I find the image misleading. This completely built-in, every-need-and-square-inch-considered space is like one of those Chinese puzzle boxes that suddenly open to reveal hidden chambers; everything is hidden behind walls until Schallert wants to access it. It is an “action apartment”, given great charm by the stunning view and penthouse feel.
