What to do if you need four full rooms: Kitchen, living room, study and bedroom, and square meters in this catastrophically not enough? This question was asked by the owner of this apartment, the area of which is only 37 square meters. The authors of the project are the designers of the studio Normal Projects Michael Chen and Kari Anderson. In order to make it easy for a young man to cook, work, party and relax, the developers of the project offered the option Unfolding apartment (unfolding apartments). That is, to imitate four variants of reincarnation of the room: when some objects are removed, and others are put forward, depending on the purpose of the area.
The art of transformation
The apartment is located in New York and is designedFor a young bachelor. At first glance it is spacious and neat. There is nothing superfluous. Rest zone and kitchen can be seen immediately. The question arises: where is the rest? There is a large, bright blue closed cabinet withvoluminous white stripes. We move closer to the sofa, where to the right of it, on the corner, is a bookcase with open shelves. With a slight movement of the hand, we open the large door - and a miraculous transformation occurs: a partition with a folding table and a perforated window appears. The office is ready! It is interesting that you can see it only from the side of the recreation area. Yellow color helps to activate the brain and mental activity. Apparently, the young man sometimes works from home. Behind the same impromptu wall inside the closethidden bed. It also slides out easily. Now the partition acts as a screen, behind which no bright objects are visible. The atmosphere sets you up for relaxation. The head of the bed has a small functional niche for books, a lamp and a small column. You can listen to music and read. Thanks to the perforation between the bed and the folding table, diffused light enters here. In this wonderful wardrobe, space is also allocated for a wardrobe.
Balance of color and light
Judging by the color scheme chosen, this is wherea young man with an active lifestyle. He is clearly not a party-goer, but he is not averse to having fun with friends. The combination of blue and white is associated with intelligence, discipline and spirituality. The atmosphere is conducive to relaxation and reflection. This suggests that the field of activity of the owner of the premises is associated with mental work. Accent bright colors in the interior dilute severity and coldness, add dynamics, energy, cheerfulness. But dosed: everything is balanced and clear, without unnecessary splashes. Color also serves as a separator between zones. Lighting is consolidated at the top of the cabinet. This ensures an even level of light distribution without additional visible fixtures. The space looks airy and voluminous. Spotlights are used in the kitchen area.
It can be seen that the bachelor is not averse to arranging at homea small party with friends. Well, it's worth pushing everything back in to free up space. There is a small bar counter that separates the kitchen and living room. If necessary, a folding table will come in handy, which is located on the door of a universal piece of furniture. Many different parts of a large cabinet quickly turn into a whole figure, in the manner of modular origami. The kitchen has all the conditions for cooking. Moreover, the stove, refrigerator (under the bar) and the washbasin are at a convenient distance from each other. The dishes are on open shelves and look quite organic. The style of the interior is reminiscent of an American loft in the Japanese spirit. So, guess who the customer of this project is? This is a young teacher! This option is considered not the most hopeless, but quite comfortable for living, working and resting.
