This 700 square foot attic-conversion is designed to attain ‘spaciousness’ despite the challenges.  The open plan has a single volume in the center of the space comprising the kitchen, bathroom, storage and mechanical chase. Storage cabinets flank the east and west sides of the space, where ceiling height is at a minimum.  Indirect lighting illuminates the ceiling from the edges of the space, expanding the perceived volume, similar to perimeter lighting in passenger airplane and boat design.
