We placed a cosy sofa with chaise-long, so that it is cornered by two windows and sitting there, you almost fell like you are outside. The dining table is extendible, to host more people, just when needed, and for the everyday small meals, we have also been able to put a small table (also with view) in the kitchen, for a friendlier, convivial feeling, allowing to enjoy more this space.
The main bedroom and bathroom can now be separated from the rest of the apartment, so that they can be used like a suite. We also changed the organization of the furniture in the primary bathroom, to take more advantage of the space and house a bigger, proper bathtub: to reduce the feeling of a long and narrow space, we separated the volume with a half-height wall, that creates two separate areas and a more welcoming space. Since there is no storage room, we created a minimalist custom closet, for the whole extension of the wall, which features three massive sliding doors.
The original floor was restored and together with the wood frameworks around the windows contributed to set the material and colour palette for the whole project, giving it lots of personality.
The apartment was transformed. It became more functional, enjoyable, bright, and spacious. We took the wasted space and put it where it could make a difference. We removed the chaotic and old appearance and allowed the personality of the space to express itself, creating a little gem in the heart of the city.
