This dwelling has 19m2 (200sqft) of living space, subdivided in four rooms that are covering the basic functions of the house and distributed at different levels. They include a kitchen with dining, bathroom, living room and bedroom.

The platform in the seating area becomes a twin bed, and the bathroom can be made more private by strategically hanging curtains from the central beams.
