NEVER TOO SMALL 44sqm/452sqft Multi-purpose Small Apartment - Departamento Del Signo
Once a cramped, dark and fragmented space, this tiny 42sqm apartment in Buenos Aires was extensively re-designed by the talented team at Fallone. Unifying the separate kitchen, laundry and living room into one larger space and enlarging the only existing window to its maximum extent, creating a brighter, more spacious living space. The addition of a floor-ceiling storage unit with a built-in fold out bed and a central multi-purpose counter height table; maximises functionality for day to day use. Every finish and material has been meticulously chosen to create a simple aesthetic with a sense of continuity and warmth.

    There is barely any storage in that space, for stuff other than clothes, nothing for hobbies or for books etc. Quite impractical for anyone else other than the occupants. Not a good model for people looking to redesign their space, but good if you want to design a hotel room.

    The kitchen looks nice, the balcony is lovely, but the wooden shelve with pop-out bed looks weird. They should have painted it white and use a pull-out sofa bed instead. Thanks for showing your design.

    Love it! but imagine in the living room: no conference table. The storage unit is always open, but the mattress is tucked under (you can use now-shelf as a little table to place a cup of tea etc, otherwise keeping empty) and from the top shelf there is a floating tv that goes down (eye level of the person sitting on the couch, in front of the white board) but when a guest comes in, it can slide back up and the hidden mattresse gets placed as shown on the video. space looks more open and dedicated to use while keeping that extra function of a guest bed.

      Well, it is not white or gray, which I know is taboo today. At least it has some character and they said the people living there chose it.

    I am sorry to see that an inductive burner(s) was not used. We have one inductive burner and keep it in a cabinet when not in use. This gave us more countertop space. We have approximately 50 m. You did a good job anyway.

    They designed it for someone else right? But the lady architect walking around cutting bread and opening their closets to take a purse to demonstrate an imagined everyday living made me laugh

    Couldn't get a complete view of the bathroom. Is it designed as a "wet room"? It looked like there wasn't an enclosed shower.

    Trying to figure out where any food storage would be. 🤔The tall cupboards in the kitchen were just laundry/mops/etc from what I could tell. Do the residents just always eat out?

    Always love these different design solutions. My only critique (with out knowing the objective of the client) is that seems a shame to lose the extra storage for that tiny murphy bed. I feel like that's a permanent solution for a temporary inconvenience like house guest.

  • Thijs

    Really nice. They should get a TV fixed under the pull out bed.

    Serious question from someone looking at redesigning a small kitchen: what are they doing for ventilation? I don't see anything over the cooktop.

  • Kid Vinie

    Layout looks good but I don't like the storage area in front of the sofa or the finish of the kitchen and I think the picture on the wall needs to make a bigger statement. Just my thoughts.

    I don't know, my apartment is 42 sqm and seems to be much bigger that this one. Why the reclining section is so small? Why sitting on the couch you have to admire the wardrobe with a hidden bed? Does it look good to anybody? I have no idea what the budget was and how far could they go with changing the functionality of the spaces, but if there was a possibility for the bathroom and kitchen to swap places ... Who knows maybe that would give more opportunities. I wouldn't call it disaster, but its just not my taste. And Father, forgive them that plywood in the kitchen.
