When architect Dalibor Hlavacek was asked to convert a tiny attic space in Prague into a livable apartment for a family, he designed nearly every square inch of the home to serve a dual purpose — including an oven cleverly tucked into the stairs!
In addition to the appliances, the stairs also feature storage cubbies for the kitchen, and built-in bookshelves and wardrobes fill much of the attic's narrow vertical spaces.
The bathroom cabinets incorporate a washer and dryer, and a series of window triplets let in abundant natural light to open up the formerly dismal space. Minimalist decor keeps the home airy without being too sterile.
