There are no limits to the imagination.

Architect Brad Swartz transformed this 24 square meter apartment in Sydney into a luxurious living space.

G'Day

Sydney real estate is grossly over-valued, way up there just behind Hong Kong, New York, Inner London, etc...

Tiny apartments, flats and units with a ready demand for recycling amd upgrading..

I used some Blackbutt timber to make some workbench accessories such as bench hooks and shooting boards..

Very pretty - and I do love gawping at neat, classy homes  - BUT .... a tiny space is still a tiny space - even after clever professionals have come in and maximised all the available space, maximised the amount of light coming in, and decluttered.


Kitchens & bathrooms can be sporadically smelly & damp ………. the smell & extra moisture can affect the clothes in their wardrobes.

Small homes or mobile homes are great for holidays but no one should have to live all year round in such tiny 'cages' in this day & age.

Looks ok, although I think the space by the front door could have been better used, I would prefer to be able to get along each side of the bed, seems a bit too boxed in for me, you could still have the drawers under the bed, might have been possible if the space by the door was used for a 'L' shaped kitchen or maybe I'm seeing it wrong.

A lot of these undersized flats and apartments will often be used by young(er) singles on high incomes, only using them for somewhere to crash;  and sometimes by wealthy businessmen who have a proper home out in the suburbs, and simply want a ready stay-over in the city...

It will also take time to sell a place like that, too.. 

Sydney City has had an oversupply of flats and apartments of around 5 --10,000 units per year, over recent years. (Like many other 'major' cities, builders, investors and occupants have overspent way too much on those units, and aren't in a hurry to lower their prices --  afterall, they keep telling themselves : "they're not making any more land in these places"..).

Well, in this day and age, aren't our employers making the majority of us into people who only recognize their homes late at night, when they're exhausted?

It doesn't matter the size of the space, when you think about that. And it makes a lot more sense when you consider the long hours that Japanese people are pressured into working that they would have stuff like this:

Down here,  it is still less than 1% of the population who actually choose to live right in "inner" Sydney or Melbourne itself, under the kinds of conditions referred to here..

The majority of workers live out in the suburbs, and on the fringes, forced to commute because of both cost and availabity of suitable residences..

To make up for potential shortfalls in police, ambo's and firies, (and nurses and teachers to a lesser degree), maybe 95% of recruits/rookies are forced to spend their first year or two close to the capital cities, before being eligible for transfers.
