More about this project
This home sits on a ⅛ acre infill lot just 1 block from the Haywood Road commercial district. With only 840 square feet, space optimization is key. Each room houses multiple functions, and storage space is integrated into every possible location. In the kitchen, simple, white cabinets completely line the kitchen/living area wall. The upstairs loft, accessed by a ladder, serves as a guest room, home office, and extra storage space. The bathroom houses a stacked washer and dryer, and an exterior door allows it to also function as a mud room. A simple form and tonal grey palette unify and lend a modern aesthetic to the exterior of the small house, while light colors and high ceilings give the interior an airy feel.
