ALLISON'S BEDROOM - Trebbi Custom Construction - Fort Lauderdale, Floridacomments (0) July 23rd, 2009 in Project Gallery
Renovate a small (10'-8" x 11'-8") existing bedroom in an 1,100 square foot, 1950's vacation house, into a flexible, multifunctional space with a unique identity for a 7 year old girl. The space should be capable of growing with her maturing tastes and functional requirements and be able to accommodate her through her high school years.
Provide badly needed storage space in an already small, storage deficient house. Storage required:
Books and art projects
Stuffed Animals and toys
School work, backpacks etc
Accomplish the above without occupying any of the existing closet, currently used by Allison's Mother.
Build an entire bedroom ensemble from a readily available, commodity, kit of parts. Furniture system to be 'Kid tough' and 'Kid safe' of low maintenance, high durability materials
Design and build a unique space for an only child, consistent with the design of the parents’ home, easily capable of changing with both the aesthetic and functional needs of a growing child.
