amazing use of space

Porter Fanna Architecture has an impressive 505 sf loft apartment in their portfolio that made me look. They definitely thought of everything to make this small space work. Oh, did we mention they have a little kid? Hidden computer desk, built-ins that also serve as staircase to the loft bed, hidden toy storage, crib in a walk-in closet etc.

Impressive! Check out all the images here.

  12. That is awesome. I think more and more of us will be living in smaller spaces in the future; it’s nice to be inspired by a bit of clever spatial thinking.

  13. railings are needed not only next to the children are, but stairs to the bed as well. imagine, you climbing up those when drunk…

  14. At first I thought, this is a single apartment. But then I found the nursery. This place was used optimally. Thanks for the good picture!

  16. The rug, plants, and lighting keep it looking more homey than I would have imagined!
