A Tiny Seaside Cabin

Architects Emil Humbert and Christophe Poyet were faced with a challenge when renovating a seaside cabin, located on the Italian Riviera between Bordighera and San Remo. It was tiny. So small that it didn’t even have a toilet. So naturally, they used the rooms of a ship as inspiration to maximize space. For example, each step of the stairs pull out as drawers and the platform bed doubles as a dresser. Every piece of furniture functions as storage and yet, I appreciate how they managed to find room for a thrifted stand up piano on the terrace and an old wood burning stove in the kitchen. And floor to ceiling white? Love.
