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.”
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.
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.
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.
