Design Development

Whilst designing my micro-dwelling and considering my client’s needs I have designed a dining area next to the bi-fold doors so that once they are open the seating will continue out to the decking area, this will be a sociable space to extend to outside as and when the weather allows.

This style of seating and eating area would sit 6 people comfortably but more stools could be stored away incase they are needed, folded stools would be perfect and they could be stored in the under stairs cupboard.

I chose to design tall stools and a tall table to compliment the tall bi-fold doors and the large Georgian style windows. I have sketched some more ideas to show the seating area and I have also sketched a section through the staircase to show the storage. As you will see there are two different styles of stair case, the first you would have hidden storage on one side, the other is open plan.
