Inspired by the tightly designed interiors of sailing boats, llabb architecture converted this 70’s open plan studio apartment into a two-bedroom home without expanding its 35sqm footprint.

By creating a multi-functional storage unit on the rear wall, llabb was able to compartmentalise the apartment and embed 2 concealed bedrooms stacked on top of each other; while a long wooden strip creates a distinct ‘waterline’ that leads the eye into the living space.

Still maintaining a fully featured but compact kitchen, bathroom and dining space, Riviera Cabin contains everything needed for complete and complex living.
