Apartments, summer houses, balconies, and terraces... but never a garage! This time, our interior designer is faced with the challenge of converting an old garage built in 1931 into a modern space for all kinds of activities of technical nature.

Let’s talk about another wonderful makeover! They say it's best to prepare for winter in summer, but this time, it was another way around – awaiting the makeover in the middle of winter, there was a miniature summerhouse. This summer residence belongs to a small family of three. A spontaneous purchase at first, this has become a favourite spot to spend their summers. The owners liked their "dwarf house" a lot but they felt the lack of ideas as to how to make the interior more functional and beautiful. This is where the IKEA interior designer stepped in.
