Furnishing micro spaces

January 2018, we invited Space10 and HAY to take part in designing the interior of two mirco apartments (12m2) at CPH Village 1 @ Refshaleøen. The efforts resulted in the following solutions, based solely on off-the-shelves products and small space flair.

Making use of natural lighting

The apartments have a “glass wall window” in one end of the unit, letting in rich amounts of daylight. Space10 curated and placed standard IKEA furniture solutions in a way that respect and help maximize daylight input whilst also providing practicalities that every day life necessitates.



Although modest in size, the kitchen area is equipped with a fridge with freezer, sink, work surface and an portable induction hot top.


The apartment’s inside surfaces are largely reused container and thus not possible to drill holes into.

These pictures shows a number of items that have been mounted with magnets. Installing items with magnets has the added advantage of allowing residents to easily change their private space according to need.


Shared but private

In the aparatments residents share their bathroom and entrance with one other person (left). The stairwell between houses functions as a make-shift balcony (right).
