Transforming furniture makes ingenious use of space in these sustainable condo units.
In the beach-side town of Asbury Park, New Jersey, stands Eureka, a newly renovated 1920s Art Deco building. Now home to 23 modern duplex apartments, the building was designed with sustainable living in mind. Rather than seeking more space, the ideal design was shifted to using space ingeniously. Some highlights of each unit include:
The Swing sofa/wall bed system transforms the living room into a guest bedroom for two when needed.
A Kali Duo bunk bed system with a desk, which allows the downstairs flex space to function in multiple ways as needed: a home office/work space, lounge, or bedroom for two. The two steel frame, single beds easily fold down and comfortably accommodate two children or adults.
Goliath transforming Console/Dining Table eliminates the need for a separate dining room, yet can easily accommodate up to 10 people.
Folding Pocket Chairs that are less than 1″ deep when closed; 8 chairs are stored on a rack less than 5.5″ deep and hung on the wall above the Goliath.
In Brooklyn, there is no shortage of creative energy coursing through the streets. Space, however, comes at a premium.
