Cramped Living Spaces in Hong Kong

The home is an extension of ourselves, a space that is completely our own and the piece of land that fixes us to the earth.

According to SoCO there are approximately 100,000 people living in inadequate housing such as: cagehomes, bedspaces, cubicles, sub-divided units, cocklofts and roof-top huts.

You can find a larger gallery of these apartments on the SoCO website that are not shot from directly above here.
