In order to make each space bothfunctional and efficient, the architects created a system of strategic storage. Shelving and drawers make each section livable, hiding away belongings and clutter. Since the original space is narrow, the divided spaces hover around the existing windows, using a translucent divider to let natural daylight flood each side. The dividers give privacy, while also making the areas seem open and airy.

At night, each section can be closed off with solid doors, giving privacy and creating a cozy environment. Although small, each area contains a double bed, desk and storage space. Access to a balcony extends the living space outdoors. Above each double bed is an additional lofted space, which can be used for extra guest sleeping or storage; these are accessible by wooden ladders. The lofted areas also contain built-in book shelves for extra storage. The sleeping areas lead to open bathrooms for each side.
In the middle, a recycled kitchen has everything the modern cook could hope for. The space is joined by a dining table that can be used by either occupant, unifying the apartment with the heart of the home – the kitchen.
