Jo Anne and Dan came to us with an interesting proposal. They wanted to live small - really small. With only just over 400 sq ft to work with, making this small space live big turned out to be no small task. We began by removing all existing partitions and then looking at how best to utilize the space to allow for multiple overlapping uses.
We accomplished this through innovative and thoughtfully designed storage and through the design and implementation of many multifunctional and transformable pieces of furniture. The dining table for twelve stores in the island. The home office appears, then disappears, as does the bed. Storage and services such as the washer/dryer are hidden behind thoughtfully integrated sliding doors to reduce visual clutter. A NanaWall System was installed to seamlessly bridge the divide between indoor and outdoor space, thus doubling the space when the weather cooperates. Every square inch was carefully considered, and the result is a beautiful showcase to the power of good design to rectify problems of size and space with the desire to live to the fullest.
