Two Steps. 22sqm. 2014. Redfern
To best exploit the generous ceiling height, a platform accessed via two steps was installed to one half of the apartment providing a further 11sqm of usable floor area.
A slide-out bed on a lightweight perspex sled lives beneath the platform during the day. Modular storage seating and a flip-down table locked in place and supported by the bookends from the wall shelves above provide added flexibility in the use of space. Space vacated by the bed provides access to crawl space under the platform. Drawers housed within the two steps provide unexpected storage.
The interior colour palette is derived from the building’s facade.
