By placing the bed and the home office on a platform, the architects were able to create more storage space. The half walls separating the bedroom/office are also used as cabinets and drawers.

The separating walls make the sleeping area a little more intimate – and hide the fact that you didn’t feel like making your bed that morning.

On top of the half walls you find built-in electrical outlets, a very functional detail.

A little nook in the hallway has been put to use as a laundry space. A curtain hides the washing machine when it isn’t in use.

Storing your laundry detergent in a glass jar is a bit more decorative than a big carton of “Tide.”

Even though the bathroom isn’t large, the architects managed to squeeze in a bathtub.
