Do you think it is not possible to live on an area of ​​​​33 square meters? This apartment will convince you otherwise!

An apartment of 33 square meters, according to many, is practically uninhabitable. However, Russian architects have shown that everything necessary for a comfortable life can fit into this space, while still looking airy and elegant. They called the project a half-arch apartment, because the half-arch is an important geometric element that characterizes the entire space.
