Two enterprising architects Michael Chen and Kari Anderson from Michael Chen Architecture PLLC created a design project for a small apartment in New York. To say that it turned out well is not enough. Great design in everything - in shapes and colors. It turned out a live twist. The old adage best suited to the design concept is “small spool and road” ... The task of the team of architects was to create a living space for a single man living in Manhattan who loves to have fun and sometimes works at home. The ambition of the project is to realize the ideas in a studio apartment of only 122 m². The owner should not feel cramped and claustrophobic. Flexible space is created by the transformable module. Different configurations allow you to turn a room into a bedroom, a home office, a kitchen cupboard, or even a small library where the customer stores his collection of books. Greater functionality is achieved thanks to handles and handles located at different heights. Thus, the owner can open or close the compartments of the module he needs. Bright island, made in a gorgeous blue color, nestles between a miniature kitchen and a cozy mid-century modern dining area. Designers have planned for evenarrival of guests. The ottoman from Design Within Reach and the Eames chairs are just for that. Simple white roller blinds on the windows allow sunlight to penetrate almost unhindered inside. A sufficient amount of light, very relevant for New York - another indisputable advantage of the project. Another plus of such an organization of space is that the owner is forced to keep all things in order! At first glance it looks unusual. What do you think?
