1400 sq ft.
The origins layout of this Duplex was composed by lots of bedrooms to serve as accommodation for employees of a company, the layout made the duplex feel dingy and dark.
We reconfigured the space into a large open-plan with living & dining room, kitchen with an open-tread steel staircase to penetrate more natural light to the Foyer.
Master bedroom Is located on the upper level where the master bathroom had been relocated next to the big window. A tailor-made basin with glass partition separates the bath tub area to maximize the light into the closet area.
Functional items have vanished: lacquered cabinet doors were painted in wall colors. Giving a feeling of paneled walls but not an apartment with full of cabinets surrounding.
The use of natural cement floor, grey walls, indirect lighting work together to create an oasis of calmness, a tranquil retreat away from the busy city life.
