NEVER TOO SMALL 25sqm/269sqft small apartment design – El Camarín

For your chance to win an Airstream Caravel and an all-new Ford F-150 in support of a great cause go to http://www.omaze.com/nevertoosmall

Centrally located in Buenos Aires the 25sqm El Camarín occupies a triangular space in a 1950’s building previously left empty due to its small size. A unique scalloped balcony screen allowed iR architecture to incorporate the balcony into an expanded living area. The bedroom was relocated and separated from the living area with a combined storage/shelving unit that slides underneath the bed. Polished concrete throughout connects each part of the home, leading through to the bathroom where a multifunctional ladder allows access to the rooftop terrace. A hidden feature that provides an oasis of calm within the busy city.

    Que alegría después de muchos años viéndolos en todas partes del mundo, que estén en Argentina! Mi nuevo espacio favorito.

    What a lovely, airy, usable space. I love this design!

    This looks like a magical place to live in. It looked so challenging and the way it turned out is just amazing.

    amazing!!



  7. nesekaba on July 30, 2021 at 9:16 pm

    I’m grieving the loss of that gorgeous original parquet flooring



  8. Abby L on July 30, 2021 at 9:16 pm

    I seriously doubt anyting better could’ve been done with that frankly weird layout. Very good job. I honestly don’t know if I could manage to share such a small space with someone else but it’s definitely doable storage-wise.



  9. Noora Waseem on July 30, 2021 at 9:17 pm

    The rooftop blew me away!! Really cool place overall



  10. jagged little thrill on July 30, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    should be a crime to remove the herringbone floors



  11. Estetista Olistica - Miky on July 30, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    just FREAKING WOWWWWW U GUYS <3



  12. kennya on July 30, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    VAMOS ARGENTINAAAAA💙🇦🇷💙🇦🇷



  13. Lucas David Insignares Páez on July 30, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    It is a very crazy design and lovely too



  14. President Resident on July 30, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    So much character, so much light. Id rather live there than many mansions



  15. artfx9 on July 30, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    That bathroom reveal.. ha



  16. Yoshio Ruiz on July 30, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    Hermoso



  17. Agus Ojeda on July 30, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    MI PAIS MI PAIS



  18. Wiebke on July 30, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    This is so beautiful!
    The terrace reminds me of the terrace from the movie „Just like Heaven“. ☺️☺️



  19. Lulu Chi on July 30, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    this is a crime against the facade!



  20. Chuckle McChuckles on July 30, 2021 at 9:34 pm

    I give Then credit for trying to make a small space liveable. It is a functional space for 2 people, not in my opinion.



  21. Janine Flynn on July 30, 2021 at 9:34 pm

    Absolute genius. This one is my favorite so far!!!



  22. ann morgana on July 30, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    gorgeous! but i wouldnt want to share it.. ive never liked anyone enough to not need my own private space. i guess i could build a she-shed on the roof!



  23. Amelia PC on July 30, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    Magnifico!
    One thing I’ve noticed is that my workstation would never fit in work desks created for tiny apartments. My conclusion is that digital artists have no money to buy these kinds of beautiful apartments XD Geez, they even have a pergola!



  24. Steven Laput on July 30, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    Wow! Simply amazing……



  25. Kairo on July 30, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    Getting drunk on the roof and climbing down that ladder…nightmare



  26. I'm watching on July 30, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    This is amazing!!!



  27. Prasenjit Debroy on July 30, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    Brilliant use of space and materials.
    26 July 2021



  28. jeremy litten on July 30, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    but why wouldnt they just use the balcony as part of the space? why separate it?



  29. MB F on July 30, 2021 at 9:38 pm

    One of your best apt. showcases ❤️



  30. Bautista Ulloa on July 30, 2021 at 9:39 pm

  31. yummy ju on July 30, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    Wow! I currently live in a small studio and your channel always give me interesting and creative ideas 😀 Thanks for the inspiration!



  35. Jana Jansen on July 30, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    Ok wow A ROOFTOPT!?!?!?!? This is so amazing hahaha



  36. vitalis on July 30, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    I was gonna say the big windows are what made the apartment great, until he popped that window and climbed to the rooftop. Damn that is a treasure.



  37. emma primes on July 30, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    1:37 The makeover is amazing but WHY did you remove this beautiful herringbone parquet?!



  38. Lilia Nikijeva on July 30, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    Beautifully designed apartment!!! Great job 👏



  39. Tess on July 30, 2021 at 9:50 pm

    Bueno, tiene de todo…qué más se puede pedir!!!



  40. jd chy on July 30, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    this is probably by far one of the hardest floor plan/design to tackle on this channel which in turn, made it one of the most innovative as well so kudos to the architect for pulling it off !



  41. Patricia OConnor on July 30, 2021 at 9:55 pm

    The owner of the apartment also owns the rooftop terrace or is it a rental?



  42. loolpau on July 30, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    This is amazing but now I’m going to cry because I remembered that I live in a third world country and I won’t find an apartment like that so easily. 😞



  43. hqlola on July 30, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    THAT SHOWER IS SO SICK OH MY GOD!!!!! Beautiful. Bravo.



  44. Lour Lopez on July 30, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    I was like "hey, that looks like my neighbourhood" and then he said it’s Buenos Aires. I saw the address and I’m 3 blocks away! Such a lovely neighborhood, I never would have imagined a place like that hidden in the middle of the city ❤️



  45. Kilak on July 30, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    Since there’s tons of natural light I think he could have used more colour. those shelves could even be black and the cabinets could use some light wood texture

    This apartment is extremely well designed and beautiful too look at.



  48. Rohini on July 30, 2021 at 10:03 pm

    You have really done good design considering the challenging shape of the room



  49. Juancín on July 30, 2021 at 10:06 pm

    Vivo a cuatro cuadras del departamento!
    Lo fui a visitar hoy. Muy bonito.

    I live four blocks from the apartment!
    I went to visit him today. Beautiful.
