We worked out a simple refurbishment for this apartment, by modestly rounding out additions proposed in this home. The living area is a compact 16sqm designed for comfortable gathering and circulation.
A warm veneer wall forms the backdrop and identity to the apartment. As an anchor, it broadens the experience of hosting & gathering. This is an intervention to the developer’s floor plan which proposes isolated anchors and narrows the experience of a decently sized space.
Functionally, the apartment is structured around a hosting island, made of a concrete top suspended between two textural volumes. Here, a sensitive balance was struck between a strong defined backdrop against textural white surfaces to bring character and dimension, without oppressing the space.
