Brilliant Interior Design Embeds Furniture Into Walls

Le Refuge is an apartment located at Les Menuires, a ski resort in Menuires, France, that boasts modern and innovative designs. At the request of their clients, architecture firm H2O Architectes sought to maximize the living space of the already constructed rooms while retaining 8 sleeping beds and inserting an additional bathroom to the space. Rather than trying to stuff the apartment with furniture and walls to appease their client's request, the clever architects utilized the structure of the suite to incorporate furniture within the walls.

The 55-square-meter apartment is fully equipped with all of the requested amenities, including two bathrooms instead of just the one. The revolutionary space-saving design accomplished this ambitious feat by having couches, beds, and storage units embedded directly into the thick walls like cubby holes. In addition to the having more walking space and the ease of access to different compartments, the unique design choices in the apartment also prove to be quite appealing to the eye. The redesign offers a sleek wood finish throughout the suite, providing a refreshing and homey feeling for visitors to both relax and relish in while on vacation.
