Not much over 4m wide but with its modern renovation and addition, this wooden terrace house in Balmain, Sydney manges to squeeze in 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and openplan living on a small inner city block. A little bit industrial, a little bit scandi modern and all with light pouring in through skyligfhts and voids. I wouldn't call it tiny but it certainly is compact. Link here while it lasts.
Brazilian architect/designer Gisele Taranto went a little cray cray at this year's Casa Cor design competition. Lab LZ by GT is this space consisting of 3 sectors: lounge, working and library. And all of them are set upon a suspended glass floor filled with mirror shards in the space between the existing subfloor and the glass...thus bringing together the concept of depth and reflection. Now that's creative. I don't think I could live with a floor like that but what an interesting concept! (The leather Lego sofa from estudiobola is fantastic!)
"Why, oh why, have two dining tables so close to each other?" we hear readers lament on occasion on the blog. "It's a bit pretentious." "They will never use them." "It's all for show." Well not in this kitchen. They're for table tennis. (And large dinner parties and for the 14 children they have. Just kidding.) Wonderful kitchen. Wonderful home in Battersea, London via Airspace Locations.
This one bedroom flat on Nevern square in Earls Court, London is such a great example of space-saving solutions. Renovated by architecture and design firm Duck & Shed, the 3.8 m ceilings allowed for a mezzanine floor to be created to house a guest bedroom and extra storage. Bespoke joinery was then used throughout the flat, including a fold-away kitchen (so smart!) with a mirrored backsplash and part of the wall opposite the windows (also smart to make the space appear larger). There also seems to be tons of shoe storage so this is every girl living in a big city's dream!
