Living in a small home can sometimes be a depressing thing. You’re tight on space and need to have different spaces in your home to create a functional environment but everything seems to be just crossing boundaries into spaces they do not belong in. It’s just simply difficult when the space just doesn’t seem to be available.
The folks at SUB. Studio for visionary design have designed a single-storey home in Jakarta, Indonesia that utilizes partitions to divide rooms by functions or open up when more space is needed. This is a fascinating design cue which would make a great deal of sense for all those studio apartments mushrooming around the city. These are the kind of design elements that help make any studio apartment a more comfortable experience to live in. Even with the relative small build-up of this home, they have created a home that not only looks welcoming, but also inviting.
Certain spaces in this house serve dual functionality such as the kitchen which hides away a counter top which is used as a dining table or even the toilet door masked as a wardrobe panel. The amount of ingenuity that went into the project is astounding and helps people think beyond the norm in space utilization. This is most useful for the many young adults and families who find themselves living in studio apartments or small apartments in sizes below 1,000 sq/ft. Would definitely love to see more space interpretations by this architect.
