APARTMENT IN HONG KONG BY GARY CHANG



Just how many times would you give your own home a makeover? Hong Kong architect Gary Chang did it 4 times for his 330 sq ft apartment in Sai Wan Ho district (click here to see the 3rd renovation) - the latest renovation being termed the Domestic Transformer. Buying a new house might have been a better and simpler solution, but Chang prefers to stay on as he sees the place as "an ongoing experiment".

Using shifting wall units suspended from steel tracks bolted into the ceiling, the apartment becomes all manner of spaces — kitchen, library, laundry room, dressing room, a lounge with a hammock, an enclosed dining area and a wet bar. An alarming total of 24 different layouts can be configured within this small space!

I'll be keen to see how the fifth renovation turns out...

What a bold move! The idea of a configurable space is very smart.
