22sqm apartment, Sydney, 2014.
To exploit the generous ceiling height, a platform atop 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 resides 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. Space vacated by the bed provides access to crawl space under the platform. Drawers housed within the two steps provide unexpected storage. Photography is by Katherine Lu.
