Angel Rico Creates a Furniture Piece that Transforms the Function of a Room

Today’s home is not so much about the building, but rather the found furniture within it. Architect, Angel Rico, created a multi-functional piece of furniture for the owners of this apartment.

 

The furniture allows the husband, wife, and child to live with comfort in a property that measures only 215-square-feet (20-square-meters) in size.

Smart, flexible, living solutions have become a necessity for any small or tiny modern abode. Frequently tiny houses and apartments take advantage of “transforming” rooms through furniture.

The folded away version of the cabinet doesn’t reveal anything particularly special; just a few shelves and cupboards. However, exploring the unit will reveal a host of uses, each designed to permit a particular function.

Pulling on one-half of the unit swivels it round to create a privacy screen, dividing up the otherwise open plan room. A guest bed can then be pulled down, keeping the two bedrooms separate from one another.

Pull on another few doors will reveal the apartment’s kitchen, and a dining table capable of seating up to 10 people. It’s final use is as a storage unit, keeping items that would otherwise clutter the interior, out of sight.

Thanks to a small loft area above the bathroom, the property is able to sleep up to five people if needed. From the architect: “The client’s requests involved the ability to host other people. By utilizing vertical space, the design maximizes area and participates in the evolution of micro-living.”

  1. These designs are great for people who can live in a small space as much as I like the concept of “The Tiny House” they are really only built for “Tiny People” :) I am 207cm tall I doubt I would fit into a tiny house let alone have to climb a vertical ladder to get into the sleeping loft.

    “The Murphy” type bed (that folds out of the wall) while not new in concept is a great space saver for people who cannot climb stairs/ladders.

    The only thing I find wrong with the “house design” is its “Sterile” no personal effects/pictures/ornaments that make a building a home or is it done that way to make it easier for people to see the very close details of the house/?
