November 15, 2012 in Design Dilemma
Hey, so in the process of developing a low-rise condo and 1 unit in perticular is puzzling...its the top floor unit (front) which is a irregular shape. it is currently a 1 bedroom with an odd layout for the kitchen/living room. so my dilemma is trying to figure a design layout as a 1 bedroom (kitchen/eat-in-kitchen/living room tv, etc) and if this could be made into a 2 bedroom ? i am open to all suggestions/modifications including relocating entry door, windows, terracne door, kitchen etc as well as trying to get a closet somewhere...think of it as an empty box !!! :)
i appreciate all suggestions/advice..you guys are the best...

move the entrance door on the other wall closest to trash and closet then have a U-shape or galley kitchen backed up to elevator shaft. I don't think there is room for a second bedroom, but maybe you could transform the current master into more of a suite?

Are you looking to convert the two units into one penthouse unit?

If you are thinking of turning the 1 bedroom unit into 2 then I'm afraid it is too tight to achieve.

Sarah, I thought of that too...messed around with a few scenarios, trying to see what's going to be the best layout for couch and tv as well...
Custom home - no, not combining units..need to keep them separate ...I think hardest part of this floor plan is where to place tv/couch and what to do with the "closet" next to compactor room...I was thinking to open it all up

is the "closet" wide enough to accommodate one long row of cabinets/kitchen?

Yes, it's about 5' maybe suitable for 18" depth cabinets

here is your best bet: just outside the closet add this Murphy bed office or one of the other desk bed combinations.http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=murphy+beds+images&qpvt=murphy+beds+images&FORM=IGRE#view=detail&id=E9EE623C0C2D337E7F60899137DD74637637C4B8&selectedIndex=3
This does require changing the closet swing to in from out. You could even add a wall segment and a sliding barn door for privacy.

on the kitchen I'd add one of these: http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=mobile+kitchen+islands&qpvt=mobile+kitchen+islands&FORM=IGRE
possible the one with seating and add more cabinets on the long wall.
On the bath kick the hall down to 3'10 use the added space for a full 6' spa tub. (see Jetta tubs) and have the door moved down so that it backs to the tub instead of a full frontal view of the toilet.
