Cottage Cubed - Remodel of a 25sqm Fishermans Cottage.

'Cottage Cubed' - remodel of a 25sqm fishermans cottage. A large plywood cube of storage was constructed. The top of which is a sleeping platform. The faces of the cube are the stiarcase and kitchen. The interior of the cube contains a bathroom and utility. Cottage Cubed was completed in 2012 by DMVF Architects.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

AFTER: Even though the cube takes up about half of the floor space in the house, it allots far more living space than the original divided layout did. "This project was about working from the minimum upwards," says Doyle. "We looked at the minimum size of each of the elements or functions, and allocated space to them after that."
