agree with all the comments of the previous post but the only complain i have is that the photos dont do justice to the idea of the project and are instead seem only interested in the decor. with all the close shots. would have appreciated more photos from a distant and single viewpoint that showed the kinetic nature of the space. maybe there are more but just not posted here.

A fine example of an elegant well considered scheme obviously by a very competent and skilled architect, proving that small is beautiful.

Design4D have designed the refurbishment of a micro-flat that has kinetic walls and morphing furniture 

Design4D have completed the refurbishment of an apartment in South East London. Film making was an important part of the ideas generating process which resulted in a layout based upon the narrative of how the client lived rather than preconceived room typologies. The single 30sqm room consists of three basic elements. These are a red rotating media wall which can be positioned to serve any space, a solid black work surface which extends the length of the flat and a white screen wall which unfolds to reveal functions and define spaces. Symbolically the hearth to the home is a red digital media centre from which he can view films while washing, work while in bed, reply to emails upon the sofa or watch television in the reflection of the mirrors while preparing a meal. The mirrors also have the advantage of doubling the perceived volume of the apartment.
