As from a small narrow apartment of 40 square meterssquares make a dwelling with a separate bedroom, living room, comfortable kitchen and dressing room? And is it possible at all? Easy! A real example is in our article. With constantly rising prices for housing, people are increasingly trying to expand the available space in their apartments in every way, rather than buying expensive new apartments. Similarly, the owner of 40 square meters of living space in Tel Aviv arrived. Putting before the designers a difficult task - to create in such a small room a complete separate bedroom, a reception room, a large comfortable kitchen and a dressing room - the hostess of the house seemed to challenge the designers from SFARO Architects, which they, by the way, accepted and successfully coped with the tasks. And how practical was their extraordinary decision, judge for yourself.
Very unusual layout
The specialists wanted to get away from the usual ones, but,given the area of the premises, there were few options. Therefore, they ventured to place in the center of the studio a large white parallelepiped, from floor to ceiling, and maximize its "stuffing". And this volumetric rectangle can be easily avoided from all sides, which is also quite convenient. The non-standard approach also consists in the fact that inside the structure there is a full bathroom, and each side of the figure fulfills its special function, due to which the practical component of the apartment has reached a qualitatively new level.
The Basics of Minimalism
But first things first. Directly from the entrance, we can go either to the bedroom, if the partition is not closed, or to pass along the corridor, in which there is nothing superfluous except for the hanger, the door leading to the bathroom, and several bookshelves. It is interesting that the floor in the entire studio is monophonic, the absence of sharp transitions makes the apartment more harmonious. And given the small area and good visibility of the premises, this is also a very wise decision. The living room is also dominated by minimalism. , makes it unnecessary to acquire a cumbersome pedestal, and a glass table with legs in the tone of the floor visually does not eat space, which is also beneficial for small apartments.
Taking into account the fact that the decoration of the walls in the apartments -white, there is enough light in the rooms, what can we say about the kitchen. Three windows, illuminating the working surface for cooking, will not miss even the smallest detail. At the same time, the kitchen, built in one row, is quite spacious and comfortable, and also boasts a large number of cabinets, drawers and a fairly large refrigerator.
Right to privacy
The desire of the owner to make a private bedroomdesigners slightly outplayed and offered a slightly different solution. If necessary, the room can be easily separated by sliding partitions, but for the rest of the time it is better to stay in space and free, in order to avoid a tight and depressing atmosphere of limitedness. A small dressing room is built into the same snow-white parallelepiped. , like the rest of the room, is made in the samestylistics. The only thing here, there is not enough natural light, but this is more than offset by a multi-level artificial illumination. Again, as far as this project turned out to be practical, everyone will judge for himself, but that he is not ordinary and deserves attention - beyond any doubt. archdaily.com
