The architects used a motorized sliding wall unit to make the apartment more functional. During the day, the sliding unit is used to create a living and work area, complete with a TV and a sofa. All the shelving and storage, as well as the workspace are located along a third wall, which can also be hidden using a sliding wall. At night, the sliding wall can be moved over to the other end of the room, which allows for the bed to be folded down from the wall. This also reveals the closet, while the bed can also be stowed to form a dressing area. This works to separate off two areas of the home, which do not need to be used at the same time of the day and represents a very effective, and well-thought out use of available space.

Since the sliding wall unit is motorized no manual effort is required to move it. This unit also houses all the cables and networking components of the home, while also providing additional storage and display space. Overall, this is yet another example of what using a sliding wall can do for a tiny living space and how well it works to make such tiny living spaces feel much larger.
