A micro apartment or micro flat is, as the name suggests, a small apartment which is a one room, self-contained living space, usually purpose built, designed to accommodate a sitting space, sleeping space, bathroom and kitchenette. In some cases, residents may also have access to a communal kitchen, communal bathroom/shower, patio and roof garden.
Micro apartments are usually designed for futons or pull-down beds, foldable desks and tables and small appliances.
