I found this gem today, it’s a 180 square foot loft apartment that is lived in by two New Yorkers. The place features a ton of shelves for all their books, a nice looking bathroom, a decent sized kitchen and a small reading and meditation nook. While there are some modern flairs to this space, the warm wood tones make it feel very cozy and homey.
This apartment is 325 square feet and can sleep four cozily. The video shows an apartment that is loaded with salvaged furniture and despite its small size, it has all the comforts of home. The house is currently lived in by a couple, but they often have friends visit so the convertible furniture serves as 2 more beds.
I have been seeing quite a few of these pod style designs in small spaces, today we have Tony and Hilary’s Tiny Loft featuring this central cube that houses most of their storage and then has the bed on top. This seems to be a great approach for places that have tall ceilings, but small foot prints. I really like the curtain that can be drawn around the bed for added privacy or for those days you just don’t want to make your bed, AKA everyday for me. This apartment is 460 square feet and houses two people and one four legged friend.
Today’s house is from Stockholm, the house is designed for two people and is larger than our normally featured homes, but it is roughly 900 square feet of interior living space and another 4oo of outdoor space. To boot the owner needed a seperate office space (included in the square foot number). The issue the designer faced was they had to do all of this in a very narrow lot. The lot was barley 15 feet wide and only 45 feet deep, so the question was, how can we have a house here, but still have an outdoor space? Here’s how…
This is a hotel that you can stay in for about $100 a night, they are old life raft/boats that have been re-purposed. The designer specializes in making things from garbage and this is one of his latest creations. While it is a neat idea, the interior leaves leave much to be desired for buy has real potential.
