The new floor plan at this renovated family apartment in Melbourne maximizes social areas and minimizes sleeping spaces through the creation of “micro” bedrooms that fit a single bed. The rooms were sectioned off with full-height, pine plywood joinery — a nod to Shigeru Ban’s Furniture House. Sliding doors reminiscent of Japanese Shoji screens can be drawn closed for intimacy or opened to extend the visual space.

Curtains can be drawn closed for privacy. The bed and side table are custom, while the pendant light is from Exclusive Lighting.
