Squeezing into a Studio Apartment

Studio apartment with maximum storageRecently, I've considered how I might squeeze into a studio apartment.  Designing the space could be a lot of fun, but I have a lot of "stuff" to fit in.  As seen here, I've concealed the bed ever so slightly behind a compact desk.  For additional privacy, a curtain can be drawn across.

Shown are Ikea "Billy" bookcases and "Pax" wardrobes.  "Lack" shelves are used to create a finished top on the shorter bookcases.
