20 ways to make a small house look bigger

A selection of twenty small projects featured on Domusweb that create more space through a good organization of the interiors, from Budapest to Madrid.

Interiors can look bigger if the space is well organized: using heights to create a second floor, having a storage under the stairs or the bed, moving walls along the floor to create rooms for different functions, adapting furniture to the needs, or using a central block to better divide an apartment.

A multifunctional storage-sleeping object, designed to create a light and highly customizable space, is the centrepiece of a tiny house in Budapest; in Madrid, Zooco Estudio adopts a beam and column system that is independent from the existing structure, blending private and shared spaces freely and ambiguously, exploring new ways of living together.

For the renovation of a small loft in Toronto, rather than imagining a home comprised of rooms within an open plan, StudioAC conceived a room revolving around a singular mass, while in Milan, a mini spiral staircase connects the different layers of the room.
