Magic transformation of a small apartment into a large loft

Sometimes there are cases when people use their home as an office area too. In case they have a villa they may also have plenty of space for other things like: office areas or restaurant areas which can be rented and transform their home into a business space to. In case they live in small apartment, a few intelligent ideas may also help them transform their home into a working area.

It is the case of Robert Garneau of Studio Garneau who tried to transform a 650 square foot studio into a one bedroom live/work apartment for a couple who wanted to work at home too. The bedroom is hidden a sliding wall which features a built-in storage and bookshelves too. The moment the sliding wall is pulled back an open studio space appears instead of a one bedroom apartment and the bookshelf disappears.

The white interior of the living room accommodates modern furniture which consists of two wood sofas in grey nuances and a rectangular woo coffee table which sits on a green carpet which imitates the design of natural green grass. Storage space was sought everywhere so that even under the couch there are drawers. Kitchen area keeps the same wooden furniture with stainless steel appliances. It has a wood adjustable table that can be used for three functions, as kitchen island, dining table and work space. The bed can be pulled down and thus a niche lined in walnut veneer can be seen which is used as a headboard. On one side of the dressing area there is a floor to ceiling closet. The blue bathroom has storage niches carved into its walls so that each part of it becomes a functional storage place. Thus the small apartment was transformed by magic into a large and functional loft!
