A Small Budapest Apartment Designed for Travelers

Dubbed AIRBN’P, this tiny 30 square meter (approx. 323 square feet) apartment in Budapest was designed by Position Collective to be a fun place to stay for style-loving people traveling to the area. To maximize the compact space, an elevated plywood platform was built to incorporate storage in a cool, modern way.


The platform holds a double bed which contains storage underneath. Behind the bed, an entire wall features a configurable system with removable pegs that hold shelves.



The storage wall continues into the kitchen acting in place of upper cabinets.



The owner of this flat decided to turn it into a short term Airbnb since the city has become a popular tourist destination in recent times.


Despite its modest size, the apartment still feels spacious thanks to the clever furniture solutions they came up with. Instead of building a bulky closet, a metal pipe was installed to hold hanging clothes.



A sandblasted glass window was installed between the bathroom and the main living area to bring natural light into the bathroom.
