Two tiny apartment interiors, each under 40 square metres, are stacked with stylish features. Cool concrete elements build an industrial aesthetic that makes the homes feel mightier than their meek proportions. The double height of the first home design lends itself to a mezzanine level that increases the sense of space further; punchy red and aqua blue accents add vibrancy and layers. Although the colour palette leans to the subdued side of the scale in home number two, contemporary wall art and modern lighting designs demand attention. Weve also included the floor plans for each home within this gallery, which present a true sense of scale and layout.

Located in Madrid, Spain, this 36 square meter industrial style home has a double height interior. The lofty proportions give home to a mezzanine bedroom above the kitchen, and a library that teeters on a ledge above the television wall.
Thanks to a recess in the floor, the head height in the kitchen isnt compromised by the mezzanine platform above it. The floor recess also works effectively in dividing up the living space between the kitchen diner and the lounge area.
The red librarians ladder stands out confidently inside the crisp white living room, drawing attention to the top rung destination at the book stacks above it. Natural wood cubbies are interspersed between the white bookshelves to add interest and texture.
A massive window opens up the entire end of the home, giving city views to the lounge, kitchen diner, workspace, and even the mezzanine bedroom. Bifold doors exit onto a small balcony, which has a continuation of the same concrete floor as the interior.
Next to this coffee cup, note that the word HOUSE has been stamped deep into the concrete bar as a unique finishing touch.
Upstairs in the mezzanine bedroom, there is a different vibe. The decor in here is rich and sophisticated, suave and relaxing. A floor bed design is perfect for the low ceiling height up here; a layered headboard feature wall plays with the sense of scale.
A modern wall sconce adds a cosy glow by the bed. The open sided mezzanine keeps the low ceilinged bedroom feeling spacious and airy.
Black concrete wall tiles bring in the industrial look.
Wall shelves descend from the ceiling, ending by the unique bathroom sink.

The second project is a small apartment based in Sofia, Bulgaria, with only 28 square meters of living space.
A square coffee table takes up much of the living room floor space, after a small sofa and accent chair take up their positions.
The media cabinet follows the same leggy idea. Its white volume stands crisply against a grey raw concrete wall.
A trio of unique kitchen pendant lights snake down from the ceiling.
White cabinets make up a clean L-shaped kitchen design; wood countertops and upstands warm it through.
Bedroom pendant lights dangle on shiny copper fittings, against dark grey decor.
