If you lived in a 400 square-foot studio, you likely wouldn't think that the answer to your space issue would be a giant, bulky cabinet. But is here to turn everything you thought about small-space living upside down.
His team created what they call the "", and it absolutely delivers on its name. Inside the cabinet (which is a lovely shade of blue, if we do say so ourselves) fits a bed, desk, table, nightstand, closet, library and kitchen storage. Phew!
The firm's client wanted to salvage at least some of the open space in histeeny Manhattan studio. So instead of dividing the apartment into a bunch of little rooms, the architects opted for an "extreme density" tactic that's basically the ultimate small-space furniture hack.
The cabinet's crafty doors and panels can be opened, expanded, and adjusted to reveal the piece's many uses. Here's what it looks like completely closed up:
A Murphy-style bed flips down from the center, a nightstand hides in the wall, and a privacy screen opens to the right — light can still enter thanks to the perforated screen.
The same large door also flips open to reveal a desk that, when paired with the built-in bookcase, makes an office appear right before your eyes.
The flip-out table also acts as a bar or buffet for entertaining. Hidden lights on top of the cabinet can nearly illuminate the entire apartment, reducing the need for standalone lamps.
