This Tiny House In Australia Has A Retractable Bed To Save Space

 

Lara and Andrew, two graduate architects in Australia, teamed up with builder Greg Thornton of Greg Thornton Constructions to form The Tiny House Company, and as part of one of their tiny house builds, they created an interesting retractable bed to save on space.

The bed rises above the lounge area during the day. and when it’s required at night, the bed which is on a remote controlled hoist and track system built into the wall, lowers down to turn the lounge into a fully functioning bed.

Storage is always important when designing a tiny house, and they decided to include wall full of storage and closets within the wall that the bed is mounted on.


This wall in a tiny home has a closet hidden within it.
