Architectural refurbishment


Completed February 2014

A trendy and compact sleeping-kitchen-bathroom pod designed and built as part of the refurbishment of a 15m2 studio flat in Redland. The client wanted a cool ‘crash-pad’ for entertaining and staying in when working at the BBC HQ in Bristol during the week. We made the tiny space work hard to create a comfortable, space efficient home that wasn’t cramped on a £12k budget. 

The design was explored in SketchUp and the built project features hidden storage, a recessed double mattress and a translucent bathroom door within a white, charcoal and lime colour scheme. Framed openings in the pod line up at high level with the window into the communal hall and external window beyond to bring additional light into the space; maximising the view from the sleeping platform.
