Compartmental LivingSunil Bhuta spent 6 months looking for the ideal place to rent and knew he had found it when he stumbled upon this simple condo one block from the beach. Immediately he began getting rid of the clutter and bulky furniture in the space. As a minimalist, Bhuta wanted to strip the condo down to the basics, creating the illusion of space.
The downstairs consists of four quadrants: a living room with a couch that opens up to a queen-sized bed, a chaise and a plasma TV with floating shelf storage; a kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances, a bar with stools and enough room for a wine refrigerator; a small bathroom; and a closet carved out from under the stairs. In the kitchen, an island with bar stools doubles as a dining table and food prep space; nearby a large chalkboard provides an area for temporary "art."
