Single Apartment unit Renovation project
Large spacious Kitchen Dining table to share with friends and family. A tall bookshelf akin to a wall demarcating the work area to the living area. Functionally centralized wet-area, Large and detached bedroom for good night’s sleep. Such moments we imagined in our lives were delicately fitted within the small space at hand.
To effectively make use of the space, bookshelf and millwork box containing the wet-area are oriented differently to the base-grid to generate a sense of depth in spite of the small area.
As a result, manifesting in the unique shape of the dining table located in the center naturally pointing towards the shrine which can be seen through the North-Eastern opening.
The floor is designed with several levels – to accommodate kitchen counter level difference with dining table, to act as a semi-spatial divider between the living area and work, and can also become steps for sitting.
To complement this, selection of loose furniture within the space aims to extend the terrain of dimension by association, contributing to the cadence of space.
Here there is no tangible difference between the wall and furniture, light and air touching upon them pronounces them as one in the same – intonation which liquify into one warm space.
