    This 65-square-meter (699-square-foot) apartment in Barcelona was renovated by Miel Arquitectos and Studio P10 as a flexible home for coexistence. Two independent units are on either side of the elongated space, with a central communal area in the middle.

    In each of the separate units, the teams tackled the four basic requirements — sleep, work, relaxation, and hygiene. The common space houses the kitchen and dining room, along with the social functions. The goal with the design was to balance privacy, giving residents the ability to close themselves off in their respective spaces without blocking the natural light for the rest of the apartment.
