The flat was a space with low ceilings and 5 tiny rooms. It was in very bad shape so the first solution was to demolish everything, including the roof. Then a square space was revealed. The 57 square meter space that you see now was created in 2010. It was a challenging project by architect Marta Badiola. The main goals were to convert the space into a livable home, to use it more appropriately and to give it a fresh and modern look.

The house is a summer retreat and it was built on pillars. It’s a detail designed to make it easily integrate into the surrounding environment and the pillars were inspired by the tree-trunks. They support the front volume just like the trunks support the tree’s crown. This particular region around the lake requires all buildings to respect the Building Regulation made in the middle of the 20th century. This means they have to have a traditional, pitched roof. However, this plot is situated on the border and the architects managed to get permission for a flat roof that better fits with the modern design of the house.

smallbedroom11 Design Dilemma: Size Doesn’t Matter

According to a recent report of the American Institute of Architects, Americans are getting more real with home design. Instead of lusting after huge master bedroom suites, gigantic kitchens, two-story entry ways and living rooms,  and enormous “his n’ her” bathroom suites, people these days are content with smaller everything, including less square footage, smaller master bedrooms, smaller kitchens, and an open floor plan that combines living room space with the dining room and kitchen. The key, these days, is functionality, not size.

It makes a lot of sense with higher energy costs and environmental concerns.  Who wants to heat a 4000 square foot manse when a 1500 square foot cottage can work just as well?  So let’s take a look at how lean and mean can function in real life, shall we?
