Bold Design Office Built From Tiny Abandoned Rooftop Elevator Shed

When they discovered a tiny unused room on the roof (it once housed for the building’s elevator engine), they asked for permission to convert it into an office with a view. To keep the budget low, they invited friends to work parties to help convert the 17m2 (183-square-feet) space.” – Kirsten Dirksen

I love the idea of using the floor for transforming the space. Watch Tiny Parisian rooftop office on YouTube. See what Bold Design creates in this small space. Read more at faircompanies.com.

Swedish Cabin with Rooftop Garden

The Swedish company Jabo has launched “Steps 15,” a small prefab house with a lot of ingenious features. The outdoor staircase that leads up to the roof terrace has plant containers and hides a retractable outdoor kitchen.  On the opposite side is placed a small storage room and a bench that also conceals storage. Large sliding glass doors and windows on three sides make this a very contemporary guest house, hobby room or cabin. “Steps 15” is designed by architect Rahel Belatchew Lerdell.” – Living in a shoebox
