The most efficient apartment ever

This is quite freaky: Architect Gary Chang has created a 24-rooms-in-one-32-square-metre apartment (translation: he’s taken a tiny apartment and converted it such that it functions as 24 different rooms….using sliding walls). Check this out:

The New York Times describes it in more detail:

The wall units, which are suspended from steel tracks bolted into the ceiling, seem to float an inch above the reflective black granite floor. As they are shifted around, the apartment becomes all manner of spaces — kitchen, library, laundry room, dressing room, a lounge with a hammock, an enclosed dining area and a wet bar.

I like how obsessive some people can become about minimizing their lives. It becomes a practice for life and it’s a good one at that. Everything you do is prefaced with the question: do I have space for this, will it get in the way, will it complicate my life further.

In short, do I REALLY need this?
