The 296 sq. foot (27.5 sqm) studio condo wanted an answer that would come with a kitchen space, cupboard space, laundry room, mattress/bed room, library, desk/eating desk, bar, and closet. The architects determined to design customized cupboards that would come with the entire necessities.
The cupboards embrace quite a lot of hidden options, like a fold-down mattress, which when lowered, cabinets behind and to the facet of the mattress are revealed.
When not in use, the mattress merely folds again into the wall, permitting the desk to be dropped down. The intelligent design has a easy locking mechanism that retains it in place.

The alternative wall and the open plan space are devoted to the lounge, with a easy sofa and a few chairs. Subsequent to the lounge is a hidden closet that slides out to disclose drawers, cabinets, and an area to hold garments.
The nook has been softened with a curved cupboard that opens to shelving.
