I found a new Vardo built by a archeologist. He didn’t have a name anywhere on his site, but his website can be found at the bottom at the “via” link. He wanted to have a small place that he could stay as he went to the various event and camping trips, torn between a vardo and a tear drop, he decided to go for this type. After about fifty iteration on paper, he finally came up with the design that you see here today.
Imagine taking a 500 square foot apartment with only one window and make it liveable. I had posted a photo of this not too long ago, but I didn’t have any photos of the rest of the place. I love the sleeping nook in this apartment and the space was just executed so well.
“[They] incorporated tons of white and wood to open the space and make it feel lighter. They also removed most of the doors and replaced the empty wall space with sleek and simple compact storage. In fact, there is storage space within nearly every surface of the apartment, including overhead spots and even tucked into the stairs climbing toward the loft. Minimal fixtures and alcoves built directly into the tile walls make the bathroom appear large and luxurious, even by New York standards! The kitchen also feels super spacious with even more storage and ultra chic appliances offset by brightening white tile.”
I found this gem today, it’s a 180 square foot loft apartment that is lived in by two New Yorkers. The place features a ton of shelves for all their books, a nice looking bathroom, a decent sized kitchen and a small reading and meditation nook. While there are some modern flairs to this space, the warm wood tones make it feel very cozy and homey.
This apartment is 325 square feet and can sleep four cozily. The video shows an apartment that is loaded with salvaged furniture and despite its small size, it has all the comforts of home. The house is currently lived in by a couple, but they often have friends visit so the convertible furniture serves as 2 more beds.
I have been seeing quite a few of these pod style designs in small spaces, today we have Tony and Hilary’s Tiny Loft featuring this central cube that houses most of their storage and then has the bed on top. This seems to be a great approach for places that have tall ceilings, but small foot prints. I really like the curtain that can be drawn around the bed for added privacy or for those days you just don’t want to make your bed, AKA everyday for me. This apartment is 460 square feet and houses two people and one four legged friend.
