After an extensive office remodel, we are finally all moved back in and cracking down on design challenges. We are still working on the small apartment in the city that we did the living room challenge on. This week I thought I would talk about space planning, specifically in small, long and narrow spaces. Below is the plan that I posted early, but now I want to look at the master bedroom. You can the outline of the current furniture plan and there is a lot of wasted space made by the location with bed. All of corners and small niches are filled with chairs and small furniture pieces. The location of the bed is trying not to block the asymmetrical window or the door to the closet. However, it is creating problems with the other pieces in the space and probably frustrating the person that has to get out of bed and run into the wall. The seating that is in the room is not being used because it is facing the wall with the bed and lacks interest. Narrow spaces like this often have these same problems with a lack fluidity. I am going to take the concept of movement and a series of spaces within a space to create a place that is much more functional and efficient.
