At the beginning of this project there was an old devastated apartment calling for reconstruction. In the apartment area of 51 m² the main task was to solve the lack of storage space and at the same time to do not fill the space with wardrobes.

In small apartments, where is the assumption that there will live two persons of the similar age and similar day regime, is meaningless to divide space into zones or into smaller units. On the contrary, t is reasonable to open at full blast so the day part act as a one big room. In this case we connected living room with kitchen and also with foyer.

Overhead kitchen countertop

Overhead kitchen countertop makes the floor maintenance under the furniture easier and at the same time it optical enlarges floor area of day zone. We designed led lights on the overhanged parts of the furniture, which intensify the impress of airy space. Colorful led lights are synchronized in the all parts of the apartment.

Storage space in bedroom

Bedroom disposition didn't allow us to use the entire length of the wall, therefore we designed self-standing cabinets. White-mirrored wardrobe with sliding doors is big enough to store clothing for two people. Wardrobe has its own lighting that turns on after the sliding of doors, if there is shadow inside the room.

View from shower counter

We designed the bathroom entrance door made of frosted glass, which let the daylight go through during the day. Bathroom fittings are concealed so water exposed area are reduced to the surface parts, what prolong its lifespan. We have located a mirror cabinet with the height of the room on the opposite toilet wall, which contains the main storage space in the bathroom.

Toilet with bidet shower and odor exhaust

Toilet is separated from the bathroom with door made of frosted glass, what is not useful from the practical reason, because special flushing system connected to the fan ensures odors exhaust directly from the bowl. We have designed also bidet shower with thermostat as a addition to the toilet, which is used for personal hygiene and easy toilet maintenance.

Colored lighting scenarios

We proposed color RGB LED lights into the apartment, which can discolor the interior to any of 16.7 million colors. LED strips are placed in all rooms so as they can evenly illuminate the entire interior to the selected shade. LEDs are placed in the plasterboard soffit offsets and under furniture parts on consoles.
