This is a living/workspace for a couple who are both designers. Preserving private spaces while opening up a public meeting space was elemental in the open layout of the residence. Merging the indoor with the outdoor space, translucent blinds cover large windows opening on balconies with greenery. Integrating accessible open shelving and other cat-friendly features were a requirement to provide ample exploration.
Minimalist design elements allow for a clean and efficient allocating of space. A low-backed sofa welcomes guests, while not disrupting the line of sight, and patterned echoing the lattice bookshelf unit unifying the public space. The apartment finishes and furnishings draw on a pallet of dark browns, light grays, and white with stone and imported tile, mixed with brushed metal and baked enamel finishes. Built-in shelving/workspaces are incorporated into the living room and bedrooms. Modern grays and whites mixed with bold black project a sense of modernity, longevity, and stability.
