The architects of this inner city home made the most of the little space they were provided in a cramped city to create a home featuring modern and minimalistic design.

Seoul-based architecture studio 'AIN Group' created the 'Guro-dong Mini House' as a testament to efficient design, despite having drastic spatial constrictions. The house sits in one of the most densely populated areas in the city -- using a lot that was only three meters wide and 13 meters long.

The inner city home is shared by three people -- each requiring their own personal space. With individual limitations, the architects provided a spatially efficient home that optimizes the small space for natural lighting while still maintaining privacy for its residents. Using a "skip-floor" structure and the main staircase as a natural divider, each resident was given their own living space.
