Unorthodox Urban Condos
The Kariouk Associates 'Redeveloper Apartment' is Space-Efficient

By: Shiori Mine (Star) Jun 4, 12

Designed by the Kariouk Associates, this renovated modern apartment in Ottawa, Canada is full of clever space-saving solutions. While urbanization has resulted in condo developments at alarming rates, the cookie-cutter design leaves much to be desired.

The home owners wanted to maximize their limited 850 square-foot space, using out-of-the-box engineering concepts. The pristine white rooms are fitted with custom-built furnishings that convert into stow-away workspaces and storage units. The living room is equipped with a closet that opens up into an office. Another way to save square footage involved outfitting futuristic space-like pods to replace the bathroom. There is even a splash-minimizing urinal for when Fido likes to sneak a drink.
