Living in a tiny space often means taking risks with design. An architect convinced Rui Miguel and Sonia Lopez, who live in a 430 square foot apartment, that to connect with the outside world, they should cut a hole in the roof. Disguised as part of a rooftop planter, the hole feeds directly into their shower, with ivy and rainwater sneaking down.
“That courtyard is extended inside the shower. It’s nothing when you see it outside, but from inside, it’s a connection to the outside,” Miguel explained to Fair Companies.
