Before & After - This Old Garage Has Been Converted Into An Architect's Office

arhiDOT wanted to create a space that was unconventional and representative of their design aesthetic, that was small and manageable, and a place where they would feel more at home than at the office. They also wanted a space that would provide direct contact with the street and the city.

Looking for the unconventional, they came across this garage that was being used more as a storage room than anything else. This garage was just 236 square foot (22sqm) forgotten space on the ground floor of a 60’s apartment building in Bucharest, Romania. But what they did to it proves that you can transform any space with a little imagination…

 

Let’s have a look at the before photos…

The bright interior is full of white cabinetry, wood details and pops of color.


A double-sided bookshelf has been used as a room divider, with some sections blocked off with wooden boxes, providing cubby holes for decorative items.

The front section has been designated as a more relaxing space, with custom benches and a movable coffee table.

Behind the bookshelf divider is the office area, with a large table with space for four, plenty of storage and a small kitchen area.
