Engineer Steve Sauer has spent the final 10 years designing and perfecting a subterranean storage unit into his personal 182 sq. foot micro condo in Seattle. The “pico dwelling” (pico is a trillionth) manages to slot in every thing one may want in a house with intelligent storage and customized constructed options. The thought was to stack essential features into layered areas, like a mattress, a video lounge with a flat-display TV, a restaurant part with views to the sidewalk, and so forth.
A coated gap within the flooring hides a Japanese soaking tub. A customized desk in the primary space can match six individuals and the kitchen has all of the facilities of a daily-sized kitchen. Behind the kitchen is the toilet with a glass IKEA tabletop appearing because the ceiling of the area. The tabletop additionally serves as a platform for a mattress for friends to sleep. Using IKEA’s reasonably priced counter tops and shelving allowed Sauer to hack them into precisely what he wanted for the area.
