I’ve been into tiny houses for years now (after all, I live in a bus). But when I saw Christian Schallert‘s remodeled Barcelona pigeon loft, my mouth hit the floor. Driven by practicality, but without compromising on aesthetics, these 258 square feet have all the creature comforts of a larger home … folded neatly away in the walls.
To use a piece of furniture, Schallert must first click on one of his many spring-loaded panels and — voilĂ ! — the kitchen, table, or wardrobe is revealed. His bed rolls out from under the balcony stairs, and the shower is a glass box tucked neatly in the corner. In a small space, everything is within reach. And best of all, cleanliness is only a closed door away.

“At the end of the day, what do you need for living? You need a nice comfortable mattress, nice clean sheets, running water, a shower, and a stove to cook something … You don’t much more stuff.”
