Yeah, as a student I lived in a small place (can't remember the exact size, but let's guess 50-60m2). Adding any furniture or anything new was pretty complicated.
With CBD apartments going to 32m2, it becomes very pod-like living these days.
The difference of doing it as a student/young adult is that it's a stage of your life, but for someone who is starting a family, good luck on that.
I have a hobby that can be done on a TV tray but as my one friend pointed out when she lived out of a suitcase in the UK for a few years is that it frustrated her that she could not build up hobby tools.
This is why Tiny House living makes the mistake of shifting where you keep your stuff instead of just living with less. Many of the Tiny House minimalists create an insane amount of waste with the popular approach of can I replace it in 10 minutes with $10 rule - that is toss it if it's cheap to replace when I need it next, and toss that away.
With the majority of this country living in Tiny Homes, I do feel it is possible but I don't think we should draw inspiration of northern hemisphere countries on how to.
