Living in San Francisco, or any urban area for that matter, can often mean you're limited in square footage. My husband and I are often reminded of this fact whenever we have guests come over to our place and we turn a corner and bump into someone. When I stumbled upon this feature on a London apartment I was awed by the creative use of space.
By suspending the bed into the air the walking area is dramatically increased without compromising design aesthetics. The bed sits below a retractable glass ceiling that gives access to a 500 sq. ft. rooftop garden. With minimal furniture, neutral colors and access to natural light this London flat looks modern and livable rather than outdated and cramped.
