What do can you do if all you have is 160 square feet (22 square meters) of space shoved in the corner of an attic?
For those who are spatially challenged the space in question is similar to the space of 2-3 parking bays in a car park, not big at all.
So what if I said you could actually design this space to include the following a bathroom, a bedroom, a kitchen, a work area, a dining area and a fair amount of storage space?
Paris based Batik Studio designed just such a space, called Romain and included all the above features. No they haven’t invented a tardis, but they created a great space using some stunning design and fantastic engineering is create an adaptable multifunctional room.
One secret to this modular design is the raised area at the back of the room. This raised area provides the perfect space for the bed to slide when not in use, what’s more the bed can be transformed into a sofa. Slide the bed away and unfold the counter top, hey presto you have enough space to seat four people for dinner. I love the way they’ve used tall bar chairs on the lower side of the table and smaller stools on the raised side of the room – superb idea!
I won’t give away any more secrets about this superb piece of interior design/engineering, take a look for yourself.
