Transformer Loft - wall closed: Closing the sliding wall creates a bedroom while revealing a library and storage cabinetry.
Transformer Loft - living room: A wall bed tucks away allowing the bedroom to disappear and provide generous space for entertaining or simply a place for relaxation. Transformer Loft - bedroom: In the evening the wall closes up the bedroom while the wall bed is lowered, and guests can be accomodated on the custom sofas on wheels that form a queen size bed. Transformer Loft - screen: The wall typically screens off the bedroom but also functions as a generous projection screen for entertainment.
Media room converts to private bedroom when comfortable queen-size Murphy bed is pulled down.
The bed is ALWAYS kept in the upright position during the day, but at night I fold it down. Screened by the sliding door, Rosa cozies up with a book in the bedroom, while across the apartment Robert uses the hydraulic kitchen table as a work desk.
To make the modest space flexible, Robert built a sliding wall with QuietRock soundproofing drywall on the living-room side and rich PureBond walnut-veneer plywood on the bedroom side.
Robert: We did a lot of exploratory demolition to find hidden square footage and took out a lot of walls, but we kept the configuration (entry, kitchen, living room, bedroom, dressing room, bath) essentially the same. There is plenty of clearance underneath the bed for the television (the legs are around 6 inches themselves) but I am worried about the effects it could have on the led panel. Rosa and Robert Garneau make it happen with multipurpose furniture, a hydraulic Murphy bed, and secret compartments galore. When the wall is closed, the bedroom becomes private, and art books and collectibles are revealed on built-in shelves in the living room. The bed is the only place that this would fit and still have a nice viewing angle from the couch. I do like the idea of the telescoping mount, but in doing that I will loose a couple of inches in depth, but I will also lose the ability to open the cabinets that are above the bed.
It is a solid, two-inch-thick construction with a layer of acoustic drywall and plywood, engineered to hang from a beam we installed; it doubles as a projection screen when we have friends over.
Because of the modest space, the furniture had to be multipurpose and movable, like our hydraulic table that can be converted into a countertop and the sofa sectionals that can be easily turned into a standard queen-size bed for guests. We decided to install a Murphy bed because it suited our goal to have everything double function.
