Apartment of Only 44 meters has been Strategically Designed to Provide Comfort and Ease of Living

By • Aug 29, 2018

This small holiday apartment covering an area of only 44 square meters has been designed in a mixture of white, black, and gray, and is intended for a couple and their small dog. It is located in a beautifully preserved building with high ceilings in the center of Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel, and was strategically designed by the firm XS Studio for compact design.

Exterior view of the old building

Despite the small surface of the apartment, the high ceiling gives it a feeling of spaciousness. As if the challenge of an apartment of 44 square meters for two tenants was not enough, around 12 square meters are non-mobile shelter room walls. Therefore, it is important for the rest of the space to be as open as possible.

A built-in ladder in the kitchen cabinet allows easy access to the large storage space in the kitchen, as well as the cabinet on both sides.

In such a small apartment, every square meter counts. The tenants do not usually enjoy cooking while they are at home, but said that whenever they stay in this apartment, they intended to cook and spend time together while talking and enjoying each other’s company. Therefore, the moving wooden plate on the work surface of the kitchen allows more space to sit and more work space at the same time.

A Remodeling that Shows Part of his Past

By • Aug 27, 2018

Located in the populous city of Shanghai in China, this 517 square-foot apartment has been remodeled in a very original and creative way by TOWOdesign, fully following the long list of requirements made by the client.

Yellow and gray lounge area
TV area in wood

The entrance of the apartment and the adjacent storage space are covered with a mirror finish so that the brightly-lit house seems more spacious. To prevent these volumes from blocking lines of vision and to create a more spacious feel, the designers have deftly rotated the structures 10 degrees, a move that inspired the name of the project: 10 Degree House. Angled volumes also have rounded edges to reduce their visual weight.

Modern living room in light colors

A large window at the end of the living room lets in plenty of natural light. The storage is hidden throughout the department and the lighting is embedded in several areas to avoid visual clutter. Bright glows of color and cured textual elements add interest to the minimalist design.

Marvelous Transformation of a Twentieth Century Building in Valencia, Spain

By • Jul 27, 2018

Located in an apartment unit in a building dating back to the early twentieth century in the heart of the beautiful city of Valencia in Spain, this apartment presented a challenge during its renovation. Heading the project was the architectural firm Roberto Di Donato Architecture, which focused on the idea of creating modern living spaces that left the existing structure almost intact.

View of the small but comfortable lounge

After many years in a state of neglect, the apartment was an empty shell when it was bought by the client, creating numerous opportunities but also challenges for the design team.

Kitchen with aged brick walls

Space flows constantly from one area to another, with the separation between night and day areas provided by two tall wooden elements. These custom-designed items also contain the bedroom cabinets and three sets of doors that allow varying degrees of privacy.

Kitchen with ceilings with wooden beams

The height of the roof was also considered a particularly valuable element in the renovation. The structure of the roof was restored and maintained completely exposed; no element of the new design comes into contact with it, which underlines the respect for the past and also allows us to perceive the full feeling of space and volume of the apartment.

By adding only new essential features, the “wounds” and layers of transformations over the years were carefully preserved and displayed to improve the sense of continuity with the history of the building.

Small Spaces that Give us Comfort

By • Jul 25, 2018

In this small apartment of only 30 square meters located in Budapest, Hungary, a system of translucent curtains has been installed. These help to define different areas in this small space without losing its style and elegance. The symbolic separation of functions using textiles in movement combines practicality and aesthetics, resulting in a light and open space that shines beyond its restricted size.

During the renovation, the architecture firm Batlab, who carried out the project through its professionals gergő batizi-pócsi and péter batizi-pócsi demolished all the interior walls, leaving the outline of the apartment intact. An independent block, which includes the kitchen and bathroom, functions as the main space separator, splitting the entrance, the living / dining room, and the sleeping cabin into different areas.

The small space has been intelligently decorated in white, which has visually helped to give a feeling of spaciousness. Its scarce furniture creates comfortable, and at the same time, practical spaces.

After its Remodeling this Floor Shows Modern Environments and Full of Natural Light

By • Jul 19, 2018

This 110-square-meter apartment, designed by architects Ashot Snkhchyan, Armine Snkhchyan and Hayk Zalibekyan, working for the firm snkh studio, in 2018, is located in the lively neighborhood of Yerevan – Cascade, Armenia. It is a firmly neoclassical building from a decidedly Stalinist era.

View of the social areas of the apartment

The first floor is strangely small since it occupies only half of the original apartment that was divided into two parts. There is only the entrance area, the bathroom and the bedroom, which creates a kind of inverted functional scheme, where the active part of the apartment is on the top floor, under the sloping roof. A small balcony of the room is the only point that overlooks the Cascade, where during the warm days there are many open-air concerts. The client wanted a room that could be easily prepared in order to accommodate friends and enjoy the concerts.

Dining room sharing space

The second floor consists of three parts: the main “public space”, the terrace and a room that has a mood completely different from the rest of the apartment. It houses an art collection, TV, and a poker table, as well as many antique rugs on the floor and the room also serves as a guest bedroom. One of the main ideas of the project was to make it possible to merge the terrace, the public space and the room into a space, to create many use scenarios.

The cement floor, the plywood and the bright colors are the main accents of this project.

This delicate apartment has been recently remodeled for a client, who, having lived for many years in Copenhagen, felt comfortable in the minimalist interiors.

Entry into a minimalist design

So, being back in Moscow, Russia, he decided that this was the style he wanted for his new home, so the architecture firm buro5, led by his architect Boris Denisyuk, got down to work and created this interior with Scandinavian style. Among other things, they decided to paint the interior walls in blue and pastel pink with touches of mustard and fill the spaces with furniture as well as Scandinavian accessories.

The apartment, covering an area of 55 square meters, is located in a Stalinist house built in 1957. The architect did not have the opportunity of a radical remodeling: the load wall and the beam pass through the apartment, so he combined only the kitchen and the living room, and left the bedroom isolated.

The apartment has a very spacious kitchen, and also two closets at the request of the client. One can access one from the hallway and store one’s outer clothing and all household items. The second is adjacent to the bedroom.

Decorating the living room was extremely simple: a sofa, a television and a shelf underneath. There is also a bar counter, which is a continuation of the kitchen.

Modern Loft with a Beautiful and Practical Design

By • Jul 6, 2018

This fantastic loft, with high walls made of brick and concrete, was recently renovated in order to more closely fit the wants and needs of a young and single client. It was crucial that it fit perfectly, especially taking into consideration that the space was rented, and that, in the future, the furniture would be reutilized somewhere else. This is why the furniture, for the most part, was chosen in accordance with each of the spaces in the home.

The project was undertaken by architectural firm treszerosete in 2017, and was specifically led by experienced professionals André Britto, Caio Ferraz and Kamal Yazbek.

View of the entire area of the loft

It is located in the popular city of São Paulo in Brazil. It covers a total area of 80 square meters, which is not bad at all when we consider that the apartment is occupied by a single person.

Access to the apartment is characterized by a small hallway that limits its use. This is why a bookshelf design that could transmit the personality of the resident through the personal objects—apart from being able to establish a clear order for objects of daily use—was chosen.

The bookshelf at the entrance to the apartment moves through to the stairs, and together—staircase and bookshelf—create a space that allows for concentration and hard work. This was, indeed, as it was requested by the client themselves.

The lower level is the common area, and was designed to receive many people. This is also true for the balcony area, which was designed to help with reunions and gatherings, as the people seated there can easily move to the living room.

Remodeling – Extension of an Old Building in Belgrad, Serbia

By • Jun 25, 2018

This old building, located in Leopoldova kapija, Beograd, Serbia, was remodeled in order to obtain two extra duplexes. To this end, the architectural professionals in charge of the project, Danilo Nedeljkovic and Ela Nesic, built a new facade in a modern style that contrasts with the old construction, as an extension to the existing one to create the new volume.

Front view
Modern interior full of natural light

The work was carried out in 2018 and has an area of 300 square meters. The building and its interiors receive little natural light during the day due to its North orientation. The new glass facade also made the interior space of the new volume have much more natural light and look much brighter and more cheerful than the lower masonry floors.

Modern and elegant interior
Small kitchen in white and wood

By introducing the glass wall in the street facade, the principle of erasing the interior and exterior limits and the dematerialization of the new volume has also been achieved. The segments of the facade of the painted yellow glass were introduced to revive and refresh the glass surface of the new volume, as well as to make a visual connection with some elements of the previous facade.

The interior space is designed to have a multipurpose use. Currently, the duplexes have a commercial purpose, but their organization could easily be transformed into classic apartments.

A Contemporary Home in Taipei, Taiwan

By • Jun 18, 2018

This beautiful apartment which, from the first, breathes tranquility and peace, was designed by C.H. Interior, and is located in Taipei, Taiwan. With simple lines, this is a place where elegance floats in the air, filling the space with a pleasant feeling of well-being. Here, wood is the protagonist, and the room is full of natural light that sneaks through the windows, creating a space filled with good taste.

Its living room, with double-level ceilings and both floors and walls of fine wood, is connected to the dining room-kitchen area. An open space, divided only by the thin line that separates the wooden floors from the kitchen tile floors, leads us to a kitchen of minimalist lines with wooden cabinets and a white countertop.

Shared House in the Middle of the City with Open Spaces

By • Jun 13, 2018

The team at the architectural firm Swing, made up of the architects Dai Kanayama and Ryusuk Anezaki, designed this project in 2018. It covers a total ground area of 146 square meters, and is located in the city of Osaka, in Japan. With this project, the main objective was to figure out how one could create an open space that would be nevertheless colored by daily landscapes, all of it covering an area under 150 square meters. One of the most important elements of shared house projects is how to achieve spaces that cannot be had in a studio apartment, so the focus of the height of each room was taken into consideration, as well as the intent to make the most of its space.

The shared house should be a happy and welcoming space for the enjoyment of everyday life, where the “ordinary and extraordinary” are mixed in that space with “individual and common” characteristics.

Its designers were responsible for maintaining an adequate height for each space, taking into account the balance between adequate space for the rooms and an open feeling for the shared living room. The look through the mezzanine to the “borrowed landscape” of the trees that line the street from the window ensures the feeling of spaciousness even within the high-density city.

Fantastic Apartment Converted Into a Refuge Amid the Bustle of the City

By • Jun 12, 2018

This wonderful apartment is located on the 29th floor of a tall building located in the heart of the city of Austin, Texas, in the United States. Its position has the advantage of offering simply incredible views of the Texan city, especially if you happen to have floor to ceiling glass walls. The architectural firm Furman + Keil Architects was commissioned to carry out this project covering a total ground area of 3200 square feet in 2015. The W Residence, the name given to the project, overlooks Lake Lady Bird.

Inspired by the work of Italian architect Carlo Scarpa, the team used a series of screens and floating roofs to subtly define finely designed spaces within the confines of the building’s concrete frame.

The inherently compressed section of the single floor was reimagined with layers and reliefs, and the design was changed from a one floor space to a series of more intimate and highly composite spaces.

The precise details and the extraordinary craftsmanship in waxed steel, patinated brass, plaster, travertine and various woods create a warm and elegant space in which to take refuge from the bustling urban activity so typical of large and populous cities.

Monochromatic Apartment Located in Vilnius, Lithuania

By • May 11, 2018

This monochrome apartment, which covers an area of only 50 square meters, was designed by Aida Šniraitė, owner of the interior designer firm “Authentic Interior.” It is located in Vilnius, Lithuania. Vilnius is the capital and most populated city of Lithuania, located in the homonymous province. The city lies to the southeast of the country, about 30 km from the border with Belarus.

Apartment interior in gray and black tones

The apartment was designed for a single woman with strong tastes for industrial and urban US design, but with quite a limited budget. It has very unusual color combinations for what is the more traditional Lithuanian style, with black doors and plinths, original concrete ceilings or black furniture. Inspired by industrial and urban US living, concrete, bricks, metal have been used throughout. The apartment is divided into a living area of 30 square meters, a big shower of 6 square meters, and a bedroom of 14 square meters.

Due to its small size, some intelligent solutions have been used that have made it possible to maximize the tiny spaces. Large mirrors have been installed in the closets, so that the light is reflected, creating a more luminous atmosphere and, at the same time, giving us a visual sense of spaciousness.
