Zauberkast

....In this cabinet the kitchen is smaller than a galley in an airplane, the toilet-cum-shower is more compact than on most sailing boats, and the daybed is smaller than a couchette in a night train – thanks to the red fabric of the daybed the allusion to train compartments is hard to miss. While most architectural projects easily outsize their importance, here it is the other way around. This project has definitely a bigger significance than its small size suggests. It is a bespoke solution for a particular client who clearly knew what she wanted, but at the same time the Zauberkast of Hrsak has the potential of being a prototype, for living on a small footprint....
