MKCA Designs L-Shaped Micro Housing Concept for Häfele

Michael K. Chen Architecture (MKCA) had refurbished an apartment in New York to revolutionize the urban living concept, creatively including different living spaces in only 390-square-feet floor area. Over again, they have developed a 192-square-feet micro-housing concept for furniture fittings and architectural hardware manufacturer Häfele. The project was showcased at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) 2020.

As more and more people shift toward a tiny and flexible lifestyle, the company senses an opportunity and intends to keep pace with the changing scenario. This new micro-apartment incorporates folding, hinging, and sliding elements that allow for the space to transform from a bedroom to a living area in a jiffy.

The L-shaped design looks spacious and permits convenience in movement. On the one side is a sofa that converts into a bed while on the other is the kitchen area with sliding elements. There is a hidden clothing rack in between the two spaces.

The apartment comes complete with an entertainment zone included in front of the sofa. It is a table-like structure that conceals within a television on a motorized lift, a pull-out console that unfolds to create a dining table for six, and a secret motorized bar.

Currently a prototype, this micro-living apartment is significant for modern city dwellers.

Ori Living has previously released Pocket closet and Cloud bed – robotic, space-saving furniture tailored for micro-apartments.
