Unfolding Apartment


What Houzz contributors are saying:

Since the client also wanted a nightstand, closet space and shelves for books, the cabinet idea quickly grew in size and function. This wall was the only spot that made sense for the bed's giant multi-functional cabinet. Luckily, this wall was also an unfortunate looking wall with an awkward column, so the cabinet hides all of that. The nightstand, embedded into the cork surface of the bed's compartment, takes advantage of leftover wall space next to the column. Find an architect near you

13. 400-Square-Foot Unfolding ApartmentA size of 400 square feet doesn't exactly seem entertainment friendly, unless you're visiting this innovative New York apartment. Thanks to a custom unfolding unit against one wall, a bed, desk and storage space can all be confined to one spot, leaving plenty of room for hosting guests and cooking dinners.
