Just like the metros of Hong Kong and New York, the people of Stockholm are faced with the all too familiar problem of housing shortage – forcing residents to make due with much smaller spaces. And like many before her, Karin Matz has done more with less, transforming this 30 year old storage unit into her own apartment.

For 30 years, this 387 square foot room served as nothing more than a storage space for the previous owner, but the young Stockholm architect saw potential in the space. After a complete overhaul, which included a cost-friendly IKEA sourced kitchen and new electricity throughout, she now has a place to call home. Matz also did something extremely unique, leaving half of the apartment old and raggedy, creating an amazing juxtaposition within the space.
