Hong Kong’s most in demand commodity is space. It is not uncommon for families sharing an apartment of 350 square feet or smaller, often with a tenant occupying one of the rooms too. But living in area’s that small call for creative solutions. Hong Kong based designer Gary Chang decided to transform his tiny flat in a stylish studio that has room for a library, a walk in wardrobe, a kitchen, a guest bed, a bathroom with tub, and much more. Making use of sliding walls, he can transform the place into 20 different rooms.

My stylish and fabulous friends at Apartment Therapy (who have yet to meet me and decide to let me do their PR in the Netherlands but will, one day) areon their annual quest for the coolest small homes around the globe. Pretty much an American party but the contest does allow international submissions.
If your house is 1200 square feet or less. You can submit 5 pictures and a floor plan. There are 5 categories: teeny-tiny, tiny, little, small and international. You can bring out your votes too.
1200 square meters is a whopping 111 m2 by the way, which is another great example of the fact that everything is bigger in the US, even small apartments… 111m2 is considered pretty big for an Amsterdam pad. Mineis 140m2 and makes quite a few people green with envy.
Below a few examples of current entries.
Mobius' 295 square feet (27m2) NYC studio
Antony's 300 square feet (28m2) Brooklyn 1 bedroom flat
Rajiv's Bangalore (India) 500 square feet (45m2) 1 bedroom flat
