When a German couple hired design team Lea Korzeczek and Matthias Hiller of Studio Oink to remodel their Wiesbaden apartment, they had a few items at the top of their wish list: each room needed be tailored according to its function, and have a clean Scandinavian aesthetic. We're particularly taken with the bunk area—an elevated podium made from plywood with built-in storage that extends along the bedroom wall. Here's a look at the airy space followed by the essential elements for recreating the look. Photography via  Studio Oink Above: The idea of the podium was to keep the bedroom clean and focused on its function as a quiet and relaxing space. Go to Remodeling 101: The Ins and Outs of Plywood for the scoop on eco-friendly plywood.  Above: A full view. Above: The sleeping area is elevated and surrounded by pine cabinetry. For a similar look, consider the  Ivar Cabinet ; $80 from Ikea.    Above: The  String Pocket Shelf  was designed in 1949 by Swedish architect Nils Strinning. It comes in several colors and materials; the white and ash combination, shown here, is €148 from the Finnish Design Shop. LA-based A+R also offers the  String Pocket Shelf  in nine colors for $195.    Above: The  Senovinis Fog Linen Cotton Blanket , designed by Yumiko Sekine of Fog Linen in Tokyo, has an open weave with a 7 inch border and a navy blue accent; $134 from Muhs Home.
