Though we may be six months out from Talk Like a Pirate Day (September 19), I couldn't help but feel a shiver in me timbers when I saw this East Village studio on Home-Designing.
The entire place is sleek and efficient, requiring almost no furniture save for a couch and a desk chair. Everything else in this 6th floor home office studio is built in, from the cabinets to the very cool crow's nest sleeping loft. (Yarrr!)
The crow's nest sits above a walk-in closet and looks out onto the living/office area below; perfect for for scanning for sea monsters or just making sure your cat isn't getting into your houseplants. Although the idea of that added storage space is incredibly appealing, Home-Design aptly says that "we’re not too sure how realistic that cubbyhole at the crown of the loft is in a NYC apartment building, [though] the rest of the space makes perfect sense." They're right -- better hope you're on the top floor or that you have very understanding upstairs neighbors.
The studio was designed by Jordan Parnass Digital Architecture, and features "beautiful teak wood that houses hidden storage compartments" like the staircase drawers above. Simple and efficient, you'd have to scan the horizon for a long time before spotting another treasure like this apartment.
