Mighty Mouse apartment by Nicholas Gurney:

“The redesign of a 27sqm studio apartment in Sydney’s, Woolloomooloo. The project is an exercise in modest, low cost, good quality design that can be afforded. The micro apartment offers a proposal for future high-density urban living for one person families; the fastest growing demographic.

The colour palette of black, yellow and red is borrowed from the tiny fictional character Mighty Mouse and is used to demarcate space. It was required that, much like Mighty Mouse, the apartment punch well above its size.”

    I think this is a wonderful space! Unlike a lot of other similarly sized apartments, it seems to be able to retain full sized features. I would probably need another kitchen bench to allow for a full sized fridge but otherwise it’s beautiful.
