Bay Window Bench

A-B-A has designed and built a very small and affordable project for an apartment with a bay window in Stockholm. The task was to make the best possible use of a bay window that is the only window in the apartment that get a decent amount of sun plus a view along the street. The solution became a bench that is formed after the bay window when opened and closed. During the winter it creates a light seating area in the apartment. In the summer when the windows are opened it creates a small balcony space where one can sunbath and have breakfast in the morning.
The construction is made out of one single 16 mm MDF-Board that is glued together to thicker pieces when needed and plugged together with wooden dowels. The total coast of material including the foam cushion and fabrics is slightly over a 100 euros, A really good price for a furniture and a summer season balcony!
