This video is rather important for people to understand that living small doesn’t have to be ugly or unpractical. The furniture designs in this video show how this type of furniture can save a lot of space around the home as well as be multi functional. A desk that turns into a bed, a wall that turns into bunk beds etc. etc. in reality these pieces of “real furniture” are great for shipping container homes but also for small rooms or condominium homes for furniture.
One of the most common defence mechanisms people come up with when you mention shipping container homes to them but what if I could show you something with an even smaller floor area?
This Pod styled building has height to its advantage but obviously not a lot of width. Doesn’t mean its not practical and in fact with house prices so expensive in most cities how easy is it to find such a piece of land that others overlook completely?
Inside its not exactly expansive of space but it is using the best of its available room and making it functional as well as practical. Lower level offers the bathroom,kitchen and dining facilities as well as a seating area while the second level gives you a desk and bedroom area. The top small space is designed for storage. This isn’t a concept by the way its being constructed by Polish architects Centrala. It has been designed as a studio apartment for Israeli writer Etgar Keret as well as open to other artists and writers.
