This functional and modern apartment is located in a residential building that is 21 years old and is located in the central section of the city of Chongqing, China. The space, recently remodeled in 2018, has an area of 71 square meters. Jin Xue, from the interior design firm Xue Jin Architecture Network, was in charge of its design.
This construction, respectfully built on a mountain, is a typical local residence. For the past two decades, it was home to a couple and their only child. Now, it is owned by a young couple who, dissatisfied with the original design, lighting, and ventilation, decided to carry out the remodeling to create a more pleasant, comfortable, and functional space that could satisfy their needs.
For the reconstruction of the apartment, it was important to focus on the kitchen and the bathroom. The owner wanted to have a more luminous and spacious kitchen, to cook every day and enjoy the preparation of meals with friends. Whereas with the bathroom, the owner wanted to have a relatively independent bathroom with a bathtub.
It has two relatively private rooms, and a shared open space that, thanks to its flexibility, can serve various functions. The open space was designed to bring the occupants closer to each other while performing daily activities.
