A tiny apartment is transformed into a meeting-worthy crash pad for venture capitalists

 
 

The globetrotting founders of Arena Ventures purchased a tiny 600 square foot one-bedroom apartment in San Francisco to serve as their home base when they were in town. The apartment needed to serve not only a crash pad for the investors, but also as a meeting space that reflected the founders' vintage industrial design aesthetic and the modern, urban SOMA surroundings. In true startup fashion, we had a lot of ground to cover on a small budget so creativity and careful shopping was key.  I split the tiny open plan living space into three sections by utilizing a room screen that also serves as a headboard and allowed me to create an alcove for working or dining.  The sofa is convertible and provides the flexibility to sleep a third person!  I used a blue color palette infused with organic browns and metallic finishes to complement the space's neutral, modern mood.
