Streamlined joinery with carefully considered internal storage allocations prompts devotion to the 5S methodology. The bulk of the joinery is 900mm deep allowing primary objects to be stored at the front and secondary objects at the rear.

A significant amount of storage is overhead in areas otherwise void. A mirrored sliding door deflects attention from the bathroom and provides a feeling of space and continuation. The multi-use table can be cleverly stored away as part of the dry kitchen affording more space to living.
