This diminutive space packs in all the features you would expect in an apartment more than twice its size. There’s a living room, a sleeping space, room for a dinner party for up to 10 people, an office for Graham to work from home, and a guest room for visitors — all in 350 square feet.
- A small footprint living space, with careful planning and ingenuity, can provide all the functionality of a larger living space. The main key is flexible furniture.
- One example is that a modular sofa and adjustable height table can be quickly converted between a lounging space and a dining room that can accomodate ten people.
- The second example of flexibility is the unit’s home office with standing desk can be converted to a guest bedroom. The handy sofa cubes can be rearranged to form a queen-sized bed. A curved accordion door pulls out to give guests a little privacy.
“Graham saw the new apartment as a chance to downsize even more, but also to improve upon the design of the previous apartment. He wanted the new space to have a little more texture and character, and also be a little more affordable, with solutions that he could implement in some of his other projects.”
