DMC | Round the Corner Apartment

PLUS ULTRA studio as Architects

Designing a domestic interior often means becoming "curators" of customers' private lives, knowing their needs, their wishes, and trying to address them. In this project of about 135 square meters, customers needed to create 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a kitchen and a living room. In order to distribute all these spaces it was inevitable to allocate part of the surface to circulation space: the project planned to characterize this space by rounding the corners, on the one hand to make it more fluid, on the other to bring natural light into the center of the house.

 

The rounded corners produce a soft light effect on the walls and avoid excessive contrasts of light and shadow. The diagonal laying pattern of the parquet also makes the distribution space fluid and leads to the living room where the design becomes herringbone seamlessly. The rounded corners also make it possible to identify the kitchen as enclosed in a separate volume that is, however, in visual communication with the living room.
