This 90’s apartment once adorned with arches and small isolated rooms has been converted to create a larger open plan living space allowing natural light to filter deeper into the apartment. The structural interventions allow for a better flow and interaction of the kitchen, dining and living room whilst creating clear sight lines from the main entrance through to the living quarters. A vertical, timber slat wall cladding structure was designed to define the entrance hallway whilst integrating a concealed door thereby hiding the main bathroom from the front door.
The space is conceptually intertwined through a series of displaced rectangular elements reflected in both the bespoke furniture as well as the paving. The hanging steel shelving reflects the timber wine rack and closed storage which in turn mirrors the kitchen cupboards. With space at a premium, every nook and cranny of the apartment is utilised to the best of its potential with integrated storage throughout.
