Abito
by Admin1 / July 9, 2004

347 sq.ft. “intelligent living spaces”.
Real estate is practically inaccessible to most young urban Britons today. How does one acquire a home in downtown London and afford to live in it? Abito appears to have a solution. It’s a condo complex with compact, efficient 347 square foot one-room units. A central pod divides the space into two areas, living room and bedroom, and features a built-in fold-down bed and workstation, storage, a room for a washing machine and dryer, another room for a compact kitchen and a toilet/shower-room. The units have 10.5-foot high ceilings, you can even use the space above the pod, a floor-to-ceiling window and a private balcony. Prices start at £85,000.Via Metafilter.
