Today we will see this modern micro apartment designed by the architectural firm “Allen + Killcoyne Architects” which is compactly packed in just 30 square meters. It is characterized with areas that are clearly separated and still interact with each other.
Architects avoided many walls, but also the idea of small apartment without any barriers. There are discrete barriers that separate the private from the common areas, offering the necessary privacy. Separating the rooms, architects achieved to escape the feeling to get stuck constantly in the same place.
The owner of this modern micro apartment located in Manhattan, addressed to architects requiring an interior with clean, simple lines and elegant and timeless design. His desire was to create a compact designed home from the narrow space of 30 square meters. This home should have all basic facilities for a comfortable living, separated, and clearly defined according to their function in the interior.
Each area is practically arranged in order to enable a simple and functional housing without losing any centimeter away from the arrangement of this small apartment. The kitchen cabinets have smaller dimensions than usual in order to provide more storage space. The kitchen bench has a triple function – it can be used for the everyday activities, it has drawers for storage, and it can be used as a small dining table.
The idea for more storage space continues to the living room where the entire surface of one wall is covered with built-in shelves, drawers and cupboards, and they do not seem crowded at all. Actually, they are skilfully deployed to leave sufficient space for the TV and the sound system. In the whole this modular composition is the small desk that creates a mini office and sets the boundaries between the living room and bedroom.
The small bedroom is separated from the living with a wooden divider that creates an open space in order not to seem too narrow and closed. On the inside of the divider there are small built-in shelves for personal items. The other side of the bedroom is completely covered with cupboards and drawers.
In order to create a “whole piece” of this interior, “Allen + Killcoyne Architects” used white for the entire area, oak floor and maple for other wooden surfaces. An inventive intervention is performed on the ceiling with mounted LED lights that make the ceiling higher, which vertically extends the interior.
