Best Professionally Designed Bedroom Space Winner: Dash Marshall

August 12, 2013 7:00 PM

The clients came to Dash Marshall with an all-too-familiar problem: “They had too much stuff and wanted to be able to live in serenity, without being reminded of their earthly possessions on a daily basis.” Marshall responded by “wrapping the apartment in an insulating layer of built-in storage where there’s a place for everything.” By removing hallways and replacing them with sliding partitions and extensive built-in cabinetry, Marshall completely overhauled the floor plan, making the rooms in the apartment larger. “The new configuration of the interior spaces allows the views to be multiplied and creates a new sense of depth,” he says.

In the bedroom, Marshall created a rotating closet wall that enables the couple to create an instant a walk-in closet and added floor-to-ceiling curtains that hide additional storage. It all adds up to what Marshall calls “space age living.” To see more of his work, go to Dash Marshall.
