Ep 45 — Tansu

Aptly named Tansu after the traditional Japanese mobile storage cabinetry


Inspired by and named after traditional Japanese Tansu cabinetry, this 24sqm small apartment was completely rearranged by Nicholas Gurney. The space was opened up to fit a cleverly designed central pod, by removing a wall and relocating the kitchen rather than shifting the small apartments utilities. The Tansu pod combines kitchen and bedroom, folding outward at either side to create additional dining and work spaces, exploiting space typically left empty. Ultimately creating an experimental, dynamic small apartment.
