Revolving Kitchen And Hanging Bed In Stunning 600 Sq. Foot Recycled Cabin Photo: Evelyn Muller. Although interior design events in Latin America are always full of huge museum rooms thought for impossible houses, it's good to see the trend of small spaces popping up in places like Buenos Aires and Sao Paulo. This 600 sq. foot recycled cabin by Brazilian designer Fabio Galeazzo presented at the last edition of Casa Cor Sao Paulo is another one of such spaces, and presents some very cool features. Asked to make use of an old cabin that was already at the city's Jockey Club --venue of the event--, Galeazzo decided to retrofit the place adding a new, visible bamboo structure both inside and outside the place (photo above). He then sought to create a space that had the simplicity of traditional cabins with some of the comforts of modern living.

Overhead + Under Bed = Space-Saving Shelving & Storage Saving space is not something we do for its own sake – in this case, a cutting-edge media room was the goal, and cleverly lofting and concealing of books, CDs and DVDs provided the floor space to make this dream den a reality. Johan wanted to use ever spare bit of wall surface for a larger television and smaller wall-mounted computer screen – no dressers and few shelves getting in the way, nor objects behind the couch to cramp the distance between seating and screens. Wrap-around shelving features thicker top and bottom borders, creating a dynamic series of stripes that animate and decorate the space – being pushed out from the wall, these in turn allow for under-shelf indirect lighting in addition to a central overhead light fixture.
