A "comfort capsule"—that's what designers Pai Edles and Misty Floro of Morfosis Design call this 40sqm condo unit. Inspired by capsule hotels, a famous accommodation option in Japan that consist of individual sleeping pods, the space is as cozy and comforting as its nickname suggests, made on a friendly budget no less.

The unit is designed for two siblings studying medicine and is conveniently located across their university, affording them a place to study, bathe, and rest after their classes. Given its supposed function, most people would settle for a bland aesthetic for the unit, but the clients wanted the interiors to be a conducive environment for studying and relaxation.

The interiors appear modest at first, distilled to their bare necessities. Then the different elements begin to grow on you—the peculiar use of furniture, the exposed tubes hiding electrical wires, and the stillness of each space. There's poetry in every nook and cranny, each item basking in its simplicity. One can even say that Pai and Misty took their creative boundaries to another level for a dormitory, but if the result is this pretty, why complain?
