Flatmate

Design: Michael Hilgers, Berlin

Production: Müller Möbelwerkstätten

This fold-out workstation design makes practical use of ‘leftover’ spaces unsuitable for conventional furniture.

With a footprint of less than 1 sq ft and a discreet exterior that blends with its surroundings when the desk is pulled up, Michael Hilgers made his Flatmate so it can “transform long hallways into home offices” or provide a temporary workspace in a weekend home.

Despite its compact size, it can fit office equipment with storage space for portable devices, integrated chargers and lighting, as well as two side flaps that reveal additional storage compartments.

Compact living

Nikoline Dyrup Carlsen and Svend Jacob Pedersen, the parents of two young children, decided to remodel their modest flat to suit the family’s evolving needs.

The duo behind Copenhagen-based studio Spacon & X say that instead of moving home, they opted to get more from the space they already have, changing “static rooms to flexible, activity-based zones”.

The scheme included a home office slotted between the living room and the children’s domain.

Concealed inside the wall, their ‘cabinet-office’ has a fold-down table and shelving with plug-in stools. It also stores a computer screen, printer, files and “everything else one needs in a well equipped office,” they say. Its rear side doubles as a whiteboard, on which the couple sketch out their ideas.

When it is stored away, their ‘office’ reveals a letterbox to drop documents in, as an alternative to having work papers scattered all around the place.

Rose and John’s home

This space-saving solution resulted from a few alterations made by Zminkowska De Boise architects to the split-level ground floor of a home in one of London’s conservation areas.

The spine wall separated the living room at the front of the house from the lower-level dining room in its middle, making that room feel dark and disconnected.

The clients’ idea to cut an opening in the wall would have created an uncomfortable space with steps, hard to furnish and inhabit.

Instead, the architects moved the dining area to the rear of the house and designed the steps with incorporated shelves that wrapped around the walls to form a bench seat by the existing fireplace on one side, and a desk on the other.

Richard De Boise explains: “We included a desk to enable the clients to more easily help with their children’s homework and monitor them online. However, the new snug has become the centre of the home and family life, and the desk is used by all members of the family.”

Luoto

With his mobile, multipurpose design, architect Sami Rintala set out to boost the efficiency of smaller apartments.

Aimed at students and anyone else who needed to work and sleep in the same room, Luoto combines a desk, a bed and a few shelves within a footprint of 7 ft 3 in x 3 ft 11 in.

What’s more, the work surface can also be used as a daybed for reading or simply chilling out, with additional storage space underneath, and shelves can double as a ladder.

The designer explains that the piece of micro-architecture, 6 ft 7 in high, is set on casters so that it can be moved around the room, allowing the user to position it by the window during the day or withdraw to a quieter corner at night.

Grid system

Designer Ying Chang proposes a dynamic three-dimensional alternative to a traditional table. “As our living spaces continue to shrink, the distinction between a table and a desk gets blurred,” she explains.

“A table has become a multitasking surface. Smaller amounts of space are needed for the many different tasks it performs.”

Central to her project is the grid system, valued by architects and graphic designers for its capacity to impose order and at the same time foster versatility in terms of use.

A tubular metal frame supports a vast array of accessories that can be added and removed to adapt to the user’s needs. These include three kinds of boxes formed from steel mesh, coloured shelves of folded aluminium sheets, as well as trays in wood, concrete and other materials.

Urban hermitage

The name of this project reflects the client’s vision for their studio flat, in which they would practise yoga and meditation as well as working.

On a surface of 280 sq ft, Spheron Architects were requested to recreate “the tranquil and melancholic beauty of a remote monastery in Belgium,” undisturbed by the bustling city.

An empty space with a simple table facing a bare concrete wall, dark wooden flooring and a white, light-diffusing curtain – the only soft element in the room – succeed in recreating the solitary, monastic ambience sought by the client.

The scheme compresses the kitchen/bathroom and bedroom/wardrobe into two blocks and places them at opposite ends of the room.

Wooden and mirror panelling renders these practicalities invisible, while at the same time making the studio appear open and spacious despite its modest size.
