What was once a minimalist socialist family apartment in a 1960s apartment block has been renovated into a modern apartment for a female occupant. The apartment's small separate spaces were once organised around a central corridor. During the renovation most of the partition walls were removed so that the entire apartment functions as a single connected space with two separate ambiences; a social/living and a sleeping/working ambience.
Design-wise the apartment is conceived as a modern and fresh 3D collage of colours and materials:
- Rustic oak parquet flooring
- Semi-transparent box containing the bed, wardrobe and bookshelves, constructed in a pink metal mesh
- Kitchen block and desk with rhythmically alternating turquoise and mint plywood.
- Deep red round dining table that represents the heart of the home.
The entire composition of materials, colours and proportions creates a happy and relaxed ambience in an otherwise small space.
