Proving that tiny house living can be accomplished in just about any circumstance, Azevedo Design turned a tiny San Francisco building into a quaint guest apartment.

Before the conversion, the little brick building was a boiler room for a former laundry. The area of the utility room was a minuscule 93 square feet.

Azvedo Design effectively made the space bigger by adding a glass mezzanine and a staircase – smartly building up instead of out. The glass floor of the second story lets natural light flow from the upper windows and down into the living area.

On the bottom level, a small sitting area and kitchen provide space for relaxing and gathering. A custom metal work surface slots onto the metal staircase when needed.

Inside and outside of the building, the original 1916 brickwork was left exposed. The roof beams that supported the building’s original roof were left in place to support the upper-level loft bedroom and 42″ square bathroom.

At the top of the metal staircase, a small hallway houses integrated storage and leads to a tiny bathroom. A glass platform leads up to the sleeping platform with a queen-size bed, more integrated storage, and reading lamps.

The remodel took an unused, rather unsightly, impossibly tiny building and made it into something unquestionably charming. We can’t say we’d be thrilled to live there full-time, but as a guest apartment it’s certainly nicer than some hotel rooms.
