I’m in favor of hanging planters for the obvious space-saving reasons. This collection by Fernweh Woodworking is especially lovely. Made from the natural solid wood, these pieces are sculpturesque and wholesome at the same time. Justin, the creative force behind the brand, who is a former Marine Officer and Wildland Firefighter, created this woodworking studio in Bend, Oregon. He develops a variety of products, including these planters, which come in two finishes, black walnut and maple.

This fun design for the small kids’ bedroom was completed by Bulgarian bureau Another Studio. They created two custom house-shaped beds, completely surrounded by shelving. The bases of the beds serve as storage too. Additional small shelves emulate house windows, which is my favorite element in the entire concept. And once all this custom shelving is used to store kids’ paraphernalia, the rest of the room appears quite spacious. More photos after the break.

Architects from São Paulo based studio Vaga came up with the clever way to add space to a small home. They have built an annex that incorporates two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a rooftop deck. The sliding door allows switching between privacy and open use of the spaces. The rooftop deck is used for a herb garden and as an extra hang-out space. Cool modern idea.

How can a large piece of furniture safe space? By combining several rooms in itself. The piece called Kammerspiel (Intimate Theatre) is the largest piece of furniture the German designer Nils Holger Moormann ever created. And its role is to rethink the approach to living in a small space. The item includes sleeping, eating, working, and reading areas. A staircase that doubles as a set of drawers leads to the bedroom level. The inside of the cube provides space for the walk-in closet and pantry. See more photos after the break.
