Recently Dwell featured a slideshow of Brooklyn architect Tim Seggerman’s design to renovate a dismal brownstone studio with a sleeping loft. He was inspired by legendary furniture designer George Nakashima to “create an enveloping cabin of blond woods”. He managed to make a tiny 240 square foot space seem expansive by using the blond wood panels to disguise clever storage and cubbies.
The headboard/bed surround could be copied in veneered plywood.
…We love this combo reading cubby and laundry room.
Check out the full tour here.

One thought on “house tour: clever expansive 240 sq ft apt ‘cabin’”
Its amazing how he turned such a small area into a bigger space. Most people would have never thought to put some of the things such as the washer in a little hide away. Great job!
