Harbour Attic

Harbour Attic is an apartment located in the charming fishing village of Camogli, in the province of Genoa, Italy.  With a main bedroom and then a multifunctional space that has a hidden bed in the floor, this place can sleep quite a few people in it.

“The house is located in the old fishermen village of Camogli. The project aim was to build two bedrooms, a studio, a living room, a kitchen and a bathroom, despite the gambrel roof and the very small floor surface. That led to a custom-cut apartment, where each room is a furniture: after you have used it, you can close it.”

Marfa House

This is an interesting house that almost looks like a container home, but in actuality it is just a metal sheathed house.  While I’m not usually a fan of the rusted metal look, in the setting/landscape of this place, it suits it quite well.  Kinda of has a modernist Mad Max feel to it…  I guess I just made up a new style name, maybe its the next shabby chic.  Ha! Regardless of its hard exterior, the inside has very clean lines and simple furnishings in contrast to the outside.  My favorite part of this is the entire wall that opens up to the outside tying the kitchen with the outdoor sitting area.

Spectral House

So usually I am a big fan of ultra modern houses, but this one might be a bit much, today we have a 215 square foot house out of Paris France.  The renovation was done for about $50k and instead of paint, they decided to bring in color with different light bulbs.  The sodium light-bulbs bring in a really interesting architectural quality, with it being such a raw mechanical element contrasted against the stark white.  The designer noted:

The apartment is designed in a simple and neutral expression, without color or particular detail, annihilating any architectural expressiveness or narrative to leave only the logic of composition generated by light.

Bunkie

Today we have a pretty neat small house that comes to us from Bunkie Co.  I find this house really interesting in many ways, first off its form is that of a iconic house, almost in a cartoon figure way.  Second most of it is CNC plywood, meaning its a inexpensive material that is cut with computer guided machine, so it can be rapidly made with great precision.

One really cool feature of this house – and I almost missed this – on the second photo you can see it actually have two Murphy beds.

107 Square Feet In Sao Paulo

So today we have a post for our friends on the other side of the pond, a pretty over-the-top British homage to Kate and William.  The apartment is only 107 square feet, but packs in a small kitchenette, dining area and a area for socializing.  I am assuming the back couch somehow converts into a bed.  The bold colors certainly makes for a great space, but I do wonder about natural light, I don’t see any windows which a downside, however being that it was done in an exhibition hall, it might not make sense.
