didier’s living structure

inspired by ken issacs’ living structure (below), didier severin used the ikea gorm storage system to add storage and a loft bed to his tiny apartment.


didier’s apartment before. it really needed storage big time.


work in progress. gorm shelves form the base. the top is covered with mdf boards.


finally! breathing room – lots more storage and clutter free sleeping area.

    It looks a bit incomplete; it needs a curtain to cover up the storage underneath… something that matches the person’s personality…

    It’s obviously not for everyone, but it’s not that cheap looking. Especially if you chose to paint it and maybe bolt the components together instead of using straps. But the good thing about straps is that you can use those shelves later on for another purpose!

    For everything, it costs something like 250$
