Designed for two “style-seeking Budapest travelers,” the renovated modern chic apartment solves its small footprint challenge with a custom-built plywood structure. The multifunctional piece of furniture doubles as an elevated bedroom and hidden storage. A gridded white curtain separates the bedroom from the open-plan kitchen and dining area, without restricting access to natural light.
A large plywood pegboard spans the shared wall between the bedroom and kitchen; the clever modular system allows users to adjust shelving as needed. Opposite the kitchen is a circular bistro table located beneath three colorful pendant lights. Large windows pour natural light into the room and frame views of the outdoors. The white-tiled bathroom is tucked behind the bedroom. Sharp attention to detail and carefully chosen design pieces, such as local Hungarian art, imbue the apartment with life and subtle color.

“The centrepiece of the space is an eye-catching elevated level solution, which was built only with the usage of plywood,” write the architects. “It not only brings a natural touch into the modern chic apartment, but acts as a functional puzzle game involving the double bed, the storages and all the kitchen equipment.”
