NEVER TOO SMALL Buenos Aires Architect’s micro apartment – 32sqm/344sqft

Originally the site of a single story derelict house on roughly 200sqm of land, Quintana 4598 now contains 12 small apartments ranging from 32sqm to 44sqm, with a focus on affordability and fostering of community. Each apartment is designed with flexibility and comfort in mind. The kitchen, bathroom, storage and sleeping area are condensed into a cleverly designed multifunctional joinery unit on one side, freeing up a larger area for the resident to personalise and furnish as they desire. Each also features a large balcony with a full size sliding door, allowing access to the outdoors, whilst a window above the door brings in even more natural light. The rooftop of the building, with it’s green space, swimming pool and common area, is designed to promote interaction between the residents and build community. In a city like Buenos Aires where the cost per square metre is really high, Quintana 4598 allows access to affordable housing in a central area, and the decision to build small apartments creates more generous community areas to make life better for its residents.
