Seaside Attic, Varazze

Determined not to let the limited square meterage and awkwardness of two pitched roofs affect the functional potential of this 1940’s studio apartment, architect Pierluigi Colombo cleverly designed a few pieces of multifunctional furniture.

Previous floor plan

A central divider splits the apartment and houses a large fold-away table in the lobby and a wardrobe for the main bedroom. Additional living room storage is created in a wall that contains a fold-down double bed that neatly rests on top of the sofa providing enough flexible space for up to 4 people to share and enjoy this bright apartment.
