From its large population to its expansive highrise skyline and frantic lifestyle, Hong Kong is a city of extremes. Among its many other notable extremes is the density of the living quarters, with apartments often the size of what most of the rest of the Western world would consider a broom cupboard.
In this scramble for space, local architect Gary Chang peered beyond the chaos and clamour, seeing an opportunity for technological innovation and green living.
Using a series of neatly interlocking slide-out walls, he has managed to design and construct a 344 sq. ft. apartment that has 24 different configurations, giving him all the usual rooms and home comforts of a house many times the size.
Amazingly, it even features a spare bedroom and a screening room, complete with hammock.
