To pack a lot of living space into a small footprint, KC Design Studio crafted a compact apartment in Taipei around how its owners move through the space.

Curbed's Liz Stinson profiles the 450-square-foot home, which features a wood and concrete design carved into staggered, platform-like areas that are then divided by partitions and stairs.

Each room is focused on how it’s used—the lofted bedroom has a low ceiling since it’s mostly used for sleeping, while the office is built around sitting at a desk. The living room is more open and flows directly into the kitchen and dining area, which is separated by a movable kitchen table that also functions as a place to prepare food.

Most of the space is built to pull double duty, with a partition used as storage space and a pegged wall that creates a grid for shelving or hanging odds and ends.
