This tiny apartment uses wall dividers to create the illusion of having separate rooms.

Rather than opt for large and obtrusive walls or a basic open-plan concept for this small apartment, 'MAEMA Architects' chose to install small wall dividers into the home. While the space remains small, the walls that wrap around the kitchen counter and entertainment unit offer the impression that there are separate rooms in the small apartment, without having to actually create them. The walls are brightly hued and asymmetrical, adding a quirky design flair that adds to the space's otherwise minimal design.

By including small "half walls" to separate the rooms of this 538 square foot home, the architects were able to improve the space without obstructing it.
