quick idea....

tiny flats with ultra ultra function furniture (folding out bed....folding out bathroom...office space...etc.) 30/40m2.. maybe smaller. The idea is low cost....but very affordable...in a time of housing crisis.

       Go to Singapore, Tokyo, Hong Kong, any ultra high density city.

       I lived in one of these bedroom/kitchen/bathrooms.   

       Cheap to air-condition. Still quite expensive to rent.
