Before + After – A Small Apartment Transformed With A Loft Bed That Includes Storage

A small apartment was transformed with a custom loft bed with storage and a sitting area.

Metre Architects have shared some before and after images of a small apartment interior they designed in Singapore.

The apartment measures in at just 462 square feet (43 square meters). The architects were tasked with creating a multi-functional space that includes a bed, living room, dining area, and storage.

Let’s take a look at the apartment BEFORE the installation.

The original interior of the studio apartment included a small kitchenette, a bathroom, and a floor-to-ceiling closet. There’s a wall of windows with city views to fill the apartment with natural light, while all the other walls are plain and empty.

The apartment AFTER the installation includes a glass partition wall that provides separation between the entryway / kitchen and the main living / sleeping area.

In the open living / sleeping area, a wood platform bed has been custom-designed, making use of the height of the room to include much-needed storage underneath.

Also included in the bed design is a small sofa that can be used as a seat for the desk / dining table or a place to relax by the window.

Stairs to the bed have been integrated into the design too.

At night, hidden lighting highlights the outline of the bed, and provides a soft glow to the room, adding to the coziness.

Opposite the bed is a custom wood wall that provides a backdrop for the television, adds interest with its angular design, and includes additional storage.
