Recently the London Development Agency made some efforts in publishing the new London Housing Design Guide. Surprisingly the new homes built by the largest residential property development companies in London are meeting these standards, hence we cannot complain. Unfortunately outside London, where there are not such design standards, the housing developers keep building tiny properties. The good news is that the government is working on this matter (Here more info).

According to the London Housing Design Guide the minimum standard space for one bed room flat for two people is 50 square meters; outside London unfortunately you can easily find much smaller spaces.

Mr D. Tail is living in one of this tiny apartment, and he is demonstrating how minute the apartment can be once you start to unpack stuff. There's nowhere to store things and the apartment has soon become a hurdling track.

Space is today’s luxury.
