312ft2/29m2 is a rather small space to live in. Therefore the priority of this makeover by the Polish architects 3xa was to maximize the space and to create an independent bedroom. The ceiling at 12ft/3.7m didn’t allow the designer to create two equivalent levels, but it was possible to build a semi-mezzanine. Above the bathroom and the hallway, there is a huge bed area 4.5ft/1.35m high, whereas above the wardrobe there is a passage 6.1ft/1.85m high. Moreover, to increase space, the living room, kitchen, and dining area are combined into one room. Additionally, to deceive senses, a blind door was put on one of the walls. The design won 1st prize in DOFA’12 “Interiors & Design” contest.
