/ Interiors / Residential
This awarkward one bedroom apartment in Sydney was redesigned to maximise space and create more efficent living spaces.
The kitchen was relocated to the hallway. Using the existing step in the wall, effectivly makes a galley kitchen from the circulation space. This created a dedicated study/office space next to the window.
The kitchen cabinets also work around the existing kinks to create hiddern cubboard space for microwave and appliences. A fold/up counter creates a small dining space for company.
A faux door frame was created to make the correct depth for kitchen cabinets and also divide the corridor into a gallery space for an art collection.
A collection of designer tables and stools next to the lounge provide space for books or drinks when used as side tables or relocated to be used as stools for the dining area.
The bedroom was rearranged to include a built-in warerobe to run the full width of the room under the window sill.
The bathroom arrangement was kept as existing, but simpified with built in cabinetry to manage the knink in the wall and full height sliding doors to conceal the laundry area.
