Hong Kong’s first Eco-Smart Home offers luxurious, energy-saving living in 400-sq.-ft. https://t.co/Ibi10aL3wV

To maximize space in the 400-square-foot apartment, Liquid Interiors installed many hydraulic and hidden storage options around the interior, as well as transforming furniture . The bedroom, for instance, can easily transform into a living and entertainment room thanks to the hidden TV wall and movable beanbags. The homeowners also have access to extra entertaining space on the roof. The kitchen, which boasts an LPG gas stove top and activated carbon water filtration system, also slots away when not in use. Other energy-efficient technologies implemented include carefully planned windows for cross ventilation , a heat pump, and a solar water heater that helps save 87% on the water-heating bill. Half of the demolition waste from the previous apartment was recycled during construction.
