The entrance is a long narrow space in which a bar is set up, where they can chat while enjoying a cup of coffee or a drink. There is also the idea of ​​separate seats that can be moved if needed. In addition, a cabinet was made for washing machines and dryers and their accessories.

Patrick started with a cabinet for washers and dryers. You don’t want appliances to be prominently visible, especially in a shared space. For this reason, Patrick made a conversion cabinet that is both beautiful and functional above all else. In addition to a place for the two machines, the cabinet also has plenty of storage space for other items of shared use.

He also built a drawer where you can easily put your laundry basket. This way you can easily put your clothes in the machines and then easily take them out again.
