Small and tiny homes are tricky to decorate because there isn’t much space but you need to accomodate a lot of things. If you need some inspiration, we have it for you! This treehouse residence in Hong Kong is called Mini Treehouse Residence, and it was re-built by NCDA. Originally it had followed a more conventional layout, with all its living spaces arranged on the same floor but the designers offered a new layout.
To make the most of its 34 square meters, NCDA removed the structure’s internal wall and moved its bedroom onto a new upper level, taking advantage of the treehouse’s 10-foot-high ceilings. The new layout means that there’s space for a six-foot-high galley kitchen, which is set alongside an open-plan living area with enough room for a small lounge and dining room.
The studio adopted a new palette for the treehouse, using a dark blue for the walls to contrast and frame the building’s surrounding greenery. The views are visible through the building’s sliding doors, which open onto a small wooden terrace. Its glass balcony gives unobstructed views of the nearby forest.
The building’s new mezzanine level is wrapped in a patterned wood screen and accessed by a ladder, which leads into a pine-clad sleeping space that measures four square meters. The deck offers just enough space for inhabitants to sit up in bed and read – there’s only a bed and a shelf. Designed to look like it is suspended in space, the loft bedroom also has a window looking directly onto the surrounding woods, giving owners the sense of sleeping amid the trees.
