RL Ideas: Big Solutions for Small Spaces (Part 3)

With these small space ideas, a diminutive space was transformed into a cozy one-bedroom home

Shares

Architect and decorator Fe Porciuncula’s smallest project to date is a 42sqm studio unit for a client based in the United States. She and husband Joel Porciuncula, who is in charge of the site construction, managed to transform the diminutive space into a one-bedroom home. 

Almost all the big-ticket items in the unit are custom-made to fit the space, while most of the decorative elements have Fe’s personal touches. Aside from sparing no nook and cranny in sneaking in extra storage space, the decorator also made the home small-space friendly by opting for combination blinds instead of some overwhelming window treatment, and choosing the graphic color combination of black and white that visually enlarges the home.

Production by Kathleen Valle. Pictorial direction by Dagny Madamba. Photographed by Jun Pinzon (unless stated otherwise).
