Difficult on 1 side, the renovation of this tiny apartment also offered some evident options to Septembre, the architects in charge. This reconverted industrial room is extended and thin, with windows on a single side only. Hence the spaces had to be distributed in this kind of a way as for most of the rooms to have normal light. In which this was unattainable, interior windows have been produced in purchase to deliver the generous light from the living area into the other spaces. The open program residing space occupies the central portion of the apartment, and requires far more than half of the its blueprint. It rewards from a lot of normal light coming in from the massive windows of the outside wall. The kitchen is found on one particular side of the open space, close to the entrance. The component of the kitchen that is towards the wall is painted fully black, which contrasts it strongly towards the glossy white island counter in front and the cupboards on the side. This really dark shade also has a shading impact, generating what’;s on this wall much less plainly visible, as if hidden to the eye. Behind this black wall there are the bathroom and the toilet, which are separated. The bathroom communicates with the residing region via a modest rectangular window on the kitchen wall. The 2 bedrooms occupy the far finish of the apartment, and are separated from the living room by a wood and glass industrial searching partition. This resolution has the benefit of taking a minimal of area and most of all of bringing light from the living room to the bedrooms. The smallest bedroom which is a baby’;s space also has natural light and ventilation by way of a actual window, whilst the adults’; bedroom only get light and air from the living area.
The lengthy wall is partly occupied by floor to ceiling cupboards and shelves, that provide a great deal of storage room. The best compartments are reachable by way of a sliding black ladder that looks like a piece of decoration towards the pure white background.
The room between the kitchen and living location is left bare, as if the owners had even now not decided on the dining table model…
The area underneath the window sills is taken by minimal storage cabinets and by a smartly developed little desk, which serves at the exact same time to hide the radiator. The furnishings is scarce, with an Eames lounge chair and ottoman as primary pieces.
