One thing that many enjoy about having a home is sharing it with others at dinner parties, visiting guest, having friends over for a party and other events. But the trouble with a very small space is that you don’t have space to have a lot of extra furniture, just the space for the basics. Here is an interesting alternative to spare seating. These are chairs that flatten out so you can paint them as wall art when not in use.
Recently I have been looking into aquaponics to start growing talapia in the planning phase of a larger urban agriculture project I am working on. I found this great video tour of an automated system that is setup in a tiny greenhouse. I found it interesting and thought I’d share.
I was sent this neat video from a reader (Thanks Maria!) of a Tokyo Apartment. I often look to what Asia and Europe are doing in terms of living space because they have been living in such small spaces for a very long time. Americans are pretty new to the game, or at least we have moved away from it.
So I don’t have any idea what these guys are talking about, it’s in Italian I’m guessing, but the apartment is pretty cool! Apparently this is an excerpt from a comedy film. One thing that jumped out at me is how tiny that shower was, I don’t think you could stand facing the shower head, it almost looks like you have to shower sideways.
