steve + filip design Collaborates on a “Megacabinet” Featured in Dwell

Style meets charm, reinvention meets function, contemporary aesthetic meets the feel of home — this is steve + filip design.

The Chicago based design firm is a two-man team, Steve Somogyi and Filip Malyszko. For over a decade, the duo have specialized in full-service strategies for new construction and renovations. Their goal is to create unique schemes for homes, offices, and retail spaces with an emphasis on quality and elegance.


Perhaps one of their most unique projects to date was a very special collaboration with BACH Architecture out of San Francisco. This project showcases a “megacabinet” built-in spanning 3-stories in this Noe Valley renovation. The blue-hued cabinetry incorporates seating, bookcases, a home office, a secret reading niche and even a dining nook for the dog!

An addition/renovation to a single-family home in San Francisco, this project was centered around a 3-story tall “Megacabinet” that serves a variety of functions for the home: a desk, a sofa, a spot for the dog, storage, and it even has a door that leads to a secret reading nook for the kids.

“The interior designer, Steve Somogyi, (of steve+filip design) also played an important role during the design development of the Megacabinet, investigating compositional ideas and exploring the two sided-ness of the cabinet.”

On the second floor, the Megacabinet culminates in a desk with a buffet and a wine fridge, a sofa with hidden storage, and a feeding station for the family dog.

The kitchen also contains a custom casework “cube” that conceals appliances and a hidden powder room.
