Transformer by Studio Garneau: a Creative and Flexible Apartment Design
What if your apartment could morph into different configurations to suit your daily needs? Sounds attemping? NYC-based architecture firm Studio Garneau recently completed the Transformer, a nifty renovation of a dilapidated, multi-room prewar apartment into a spacious, sunny loft that adapts throughout the day to meet its occupant’s needs. The design solution was to create a flexible, adaptive mini-loft that emphasizes open views while providing supportive functionality — architecture and furniture opens, folds and slides, responding to different uses. The centerpiece of the space is a large, track-mounted sliding wall that separates the bedroom from the living and dining areas. When the wall is positioned to enclose the bedroom, it exposes a floor-to-ceiling library wall of filing cabinets and adjustable shelves. And when it’s slid back, covering the library, visual clutter is reduced to create a serene minimalist look. Really thoughtful and creative design! [source].
