Small Living: Sliding Apartment


Architect Gary Chang has lived in the same 32 square meter apartment since he was 14 years old, over 30 years ago.

“My whole family – my parents, my three younger sisters, and me – used to live here. To make ends meet, my parents also rented out one of the rooms to an outsider, a woman in her late twenties. Then the room was rented to her younger brother.”

Chang has since renovated the space four times and calls the apartment his ‘domestic transformer.’ Now the soul occupier, the apartment can be easily changed to suit Chang’s desire through the use of sliding wall units and fold away furniture, boasting over 20 different configurations.

“The key idea is that everyone could look into their home more carefully and into how better to optimise their resources, because space is a resource. There is no use making your home as if it is a perfect show flat but at the same time never using the space.”

A unique CD package – Wandering Pleiades

DSC_4700

Pleiades is a Greek-speaking folk polyphonic singing female group. The group was founded in May 2006 in Thessaloniki, in order to contribute to the diffusion of the Greek-speaking folk polyphonic singing.

Kostas Bartsokas designed their first album “Wandering Pleiades”. The cd package is designed from a single cut craft stock without the use of any glue or plastic parts. It was printed with pantone black and white. The package is inspired by their clean – vocal only – music and reflects an earthly and clean tone which is emphasized by the stock color and feel. The six Pleiades sit underneath the bridge and sing their songs. The artwork references the old bridges of Epirus and some traditional patterns of Epirotic knit ware.
