Purchased as a dilapidated 50's bungalow, we transformed this dwelling into a modernist zen retreat with home office.
We opened the space into a combination living room, dining room and kitchen opening to office and bedroom hallway areas.
We opened the walls separating kitchen, living room and hallway to allow maxium flow and airiness even though the space is tight.
The dining room became a "pop up" home office which could be folded away when the space needed to be used as a dining room.
The master bedroom got a face lift and a wall of closets.
The last closet was hard to use as it was underneath a staircase- so it was really only a strange diagonal nook. We decided to turn this into a bedroom for our toddler, which helped her feel independant while still connected with us.
Her futon bed folded up into the nook. Inside the nook was a custom "cocoon" with soft pockets to store her books and plush toys. Even though her room was tiny, there was space for the whole family to read togerther and cuddle.
