fbpx REFLECTING 65SQM - Open Studio

65 SQM

Engulfed in the heart of the public housing development, views out of this flat were limited to neighbouring blocks and landscaped public grounds below. The lack of long, outward view and original compartmentalised shell of 2 bedroom + living room created a deep sense of claustrophobia.

To address the claustrophobia, the space was reorganised to create a new view. One that disregarded the outward view for the gaze inward. A reflective object inserted into the heart of the apartment serves to mirror colourful scenes of daily life around the home.
