This project shows how you can comfortably live in a compact flat without having to compromise with space. The open plan layout eliminates unnecessary boundaries, allowing light to flow inside. Combined with high ceilings, it gives an opportunity to explore and develop three dimensional environments. The diagonal kitchen sets a strong mark through the entire length of flat. This virtual line defines one side from the other without fiscally separating the spaces. The use of modern and creative materials like the woven vinyl flooring or the metallic corten kitchen, opposed to simple and traditional exposed bricks and warm handcrafted birch plywood, suit the modern lifestyle of singles or young couples.
The project has been featured in many publications including Dezeen and Grand Designs.
