Lead designer, space planning
A unique transformative space where function meets form in a compact home. Practical planning, maximising efficiency and offering flexible solutions were paramount, ensuring that room sizes and user needs were not compromised, despite the compact floorplan.
Three main layout modes include:
Day offers the choice of spacious living room, study or meeting area. When pulled out, the sliding unit allows a group of four to study together. This storage unit also cleverly conceals the single fold away bed behind it.
Entertainment introduces a social dining space through the use of the convertible kitchen counter. The unique slide and fold dining table is inconspicuously incorporated into the island counter, providing the option to seat up to six guests when required. Foldaway chairs stack neatly into the counter slots, keeping spaces tidy when not in use.
Night allows for a pull down double bed in the master bedroom, and single bed in the study, suitable for overnight guests and switches day work mode to evening relaxation.
