Watch: A tiny Barcelona flat with a cleverly concealed bathtub
Micro spa, anyone? Architect Valentini Maini really makes the best of limited square footage by concealing a full-sized bathtub within a dining bench in her 269-square-foot transformer apartment in Barcelona.
I don't have a whole lot to say about this pint-sized Barcelona apartment — not to be confused with this similarly petite Barcelona pad with a crazy phone booth-sized courtyard-cum-indoor/outdoorshower — recently featured on faircompanies except for that it's pretty much pure, space-saving genius. Because really, all you need when you're living in a 269-square-foot flat up several flights of stairs is a plant-filled private terrace, ample under-the-bed storage, and a bathtub hidden in the bamboo bench that sits below a gliding, glass-topped dining table, right? Right.
