Challenge Title: Maximizing Space with Clever Built-Ins
Challenge Difficulty: Intermediate
Estimated Time to Complete: 48 hours
Required Tools/Resources: Sketching materials, CAD software, measuring tape, basic woodworking tools

Objective

Design a built-in furniture piece or storage solution that maximizes space in a small room or apartment while maintaining functionality and aesthetics.

Research

Research existing built-in solutions for small spaces, analyze user needs and preferences for storage and organization in compact living environments.

Materials

Consider using sustainable materials that are durable and cost-effective for the construction of the built-in. Focus on maximizing space efficiency without compromising quality.

Concept Development

Brainstorm innovative ideas for utilizing underutilized spaces such as corners, alcoves, or vertical walls. Explore different configurations and functionalities to optimize storage capacity.

Deliverables

  1. Concept sketches illustrating the design idea from different angles.
  2. 3D model showcasing the proposed built-in furniture piece or storage solution.
  3. Detailed plans including dimensions, material list, and assembly instructions.

Evaluation Criteria

Projects will be evaluated based on:
1. Innovation: Uniqueness of the design concept and creative use of space.
2. Usability: Practicality of the built-in solution in maximizing space efficiency.
3. Aesthetics: Integration of the design with existing room decor and overall visual appeal.
4. Feasibility: Consideration of material availability, cost-effectiveness, and ease of construction within a limited timeframe.

This challenge aims to inspire designers to think outside the box when it comes to optimizing space utilization through clever built-ins while considering practicality and sustainability aspects.
