Modern designers and architects show miracles of ingenuity decorating small spaces to accommodate everything necessary and make the space functional. Today we are sharing one more of such homes: George is among several identical studio apartments that once housed nurses in the 1950s in Fitzroy, Melbourne, Australia.
With just 28 square meters, the micro apartment needed a major renovation to make it work for today’s standards. All internal walls were removed and with a new steel beam installed to open the design plan up to just about anything. This is a practical solution to make the tiny home more functional and bring more light inside.
The new living space takes up a large portion of the square footage, blocked from front door by a corridor of wooden storage. The same light plywood continues into the living area with a floating multipurpose unit that goes from a large seating area for eight people to a bed that sleeps two in a matter of minutes. Built-in storage surrounds it and keeps things concealed when not in use. The space was made eye-catchy with a white brick wall and dark floors that contrast the light-colored plywood, which can be seen throughout the apartment.
Back on the other side of the storage wall is the all-black kitchen, which benefits from a pass through opening that allows light to pass through. The bathroom is clad in floor-to-ceiling black tile with red grout for contrast and a stylish masculine look. Get inspired and feel free to steal some ideas!
