What do you do when you want to fit five occupants in a 25sqm studio unit? Interior designer Leatrice Lu came up with a clever solution—she furnished the unit with custom-made, adjustable pieces that you just pull out from the walls. At first, upon entering the unit, all you will see is a small dining area and a bunk bed on the right. However, take a few steps further, and you will see that the bunk bed has another pullout bed beneath, while the left side of the unit holds an extra bunk bed.

Leatrice says that the homeowner bought this condo unit in Makati City to serve as halfway home "for her four kids as a place to crash [in] after school hours to evade the rush hour traffic before going home." The unit is done mostly in white with a few pops of color—a refreshing combination that makes the look of the unit easy on the eyes. The homeowner says they wanted to lease out the unit on Airbnb, but in the meantime, she'd be letting her family enjoy and make the most of the smartly designed space.
