Redland Road, Bristol
In 2013 we had the pleasure of designing a compact sleeping-kitchen-bathroom pod as part of the refurbishment of a 15m2 studio flat in Redland.
Our client asked us for a cool 'crashpad' for entertaining and staying in when working in Bristol during the week, and all this on a tight £12k budget.
The design was explored in SketchUp, and the built project features hidden storage, a sleeping platform with recessed double mattress and a translucent bathroom door within a white, charcoal and lime colour scheme. Framed openings in the pod line up at high level with the window in the communal hall to bring light into the space; the view from the sleeping platform is quite something!
