What can you do with a 24sqm homeThe Philippine School of Interior Design (PSID) graduating students explore the possibilities through Studio 24, an interior design exhibit with 24 different units that measure 24 square meters each.

One of the 24 spaces is a studio unit for a 26-year old website founder and anime aficionado. Here are the 4 things that we liked about this bachelor pad:

The Japanese Feel

How can you turn an ordinary home into a Japanese-inspired haven? Graduating students Christina Ignacio, Josh Navarro, Alfonso Que, Migo Venzon, and Angela Realica chose minimalist elements, a neutral color scheme, and a few wooden touches! 

The Entertainment Area

Many bachelors would love to have a comfortable place for playing video games on their own or with their friends. With this in mind, the students furnished this particular corner with an inviting daybed and a built-in corner seat.

The Dining Area

The students also designed a dining area that would allow the homeowner to enjoy meals and watch shows. If you look closely, you would see that underneath the customized bench is a ledge for storing and displaying magazines.

The Shinya Kogami Screen

Many Japanese homes have wooden screens used to separate the different spaces. The students updated this traditional piece with a black-and-white portrait of Shinya Kogami, the homeowner's favorite anime character.

Studio 24 will run from October 3 to 31, 2015 at the Ronac Lifestyle Center, Paseo de Magallanes, Makati City. Admission is free.
