A 29m² footprint can be made to feel big through a clever use of palette and on-point storage solutions.
Open-plan kitchen, living and dining area
Clever storage solutions
God is in the detail – some would say
Starting life as designated ‘communal space’ within a larger residential property development, Magdalena Adamus of the firm Loft first asked herself two questions: how can we live comfortably in smaller spaces and what do we really need?
Occupying a small 29m² footprint, this 1-bed apartment serves as a wonderful example of how small areas can be transformed into truly livable space.
Space is divided into two levels: downstairs occupies the open-plan kitchen, living and dining areas whilst a bedroom and bathroom occupy the mezzanine level above.
A minimalist materials palette of ‘off form’ concrete and natural oak, combined with black kitchen joinery, thoughtful storage solutions, mirrored walls and quality detailing promotes a strong sense of spaciousness.
The 18-foot ceiling combines well with abundant natural light that is cleverly drawn downstairs via skylights and a glass floor connecting the bedroom to the bathroom.
A beautiful home that makes the most of a tiny footprint by focusing on craft, clever storage solutions and natural light.
This case study is a great example of why small spaces should never be discounted nor ignored. Do you have 29m²?
