Adhering to a consistent wooden palette and adopting a contemporary zen approach, the entire apartment’s furnishings were custom-designed to integrate perfectly with the existing space-plan.
Exploring the Japanese notion of ma, the space is conceived with the idea of lightness and sensibility, such as keeping the access to sunlight unobstructed. A sliding panel acts as a partition between the public and private quarters, capitalising on the use of the existing corridors’ termination. Pre-existing voids in the bedroom are retained and fitted with new oak planks to function as display shelves. The platform accentuates the ceiling height’s contrast, allowing sufficient space for both storage and mobility.
