First in a series of visual articles on Hive Tech Living Environments

Designing HTLE’s is about designing for small spaces in a way that creates density living without sacrificing style. Packing more in a smaller foot print, you’re emphasizing quality space over quantity space.

Architects: Carles Enrich

Make every inch count. Don’t fill the space with lots of clutter and instead have plenty of built-in storage to hide all the stuff you don’t use everyday and find unique places to store things that you do use often, as in pic 1.

Create the illusion of more space by keeping things open and airy through the use of thin materials like steel; see through stairs and glass partisans pictured in image 2 and 3.

Bring the outside in with large windows to the outside world and by having outdoor seating areas like those in pictures 4, 5 and 6.

Define public areas and rooms with levels without a lot of walls. This means you’re packing more activity area in a smaller foot print and creating a more interesting and creative environment:
