This project thinks up a complete interior design of a three bedroom apartment near Zurich - Switzerland. The scope to achieve the client needs were focused on a modern, stylish and practical design of the entire apartment.
First aim was to increase the existing space of the kitchen, in order to have a more comfortable area to cook and eat with a proper countertop and plenty storage area. Always regarding to an open, clean and practical atmosphere.
Dark colors were used consciously in the kitchen, respecting the customer’s request and at the same time combined with lighter colors providing better comfort of the space and better natural clarity.
The appliances were concentrated in one single wall (fridge and oven), enriching the circulation and the entire kitchen area.
On the other wall, was created a white closed cupboard that is extended with a smaller cabinet to the dining room. In this way you feel the dialog between these two different spaces and yet, keeping the dark and light colors together.
The spacious living room allows the creation of two different areas - living and dining - with wide circulations between inside area and outside.
The main focus here was to achieve a balance between the opened kitchen with dining and a comfortable sofa to enjoy the tv time.
Was thought some storage shelfs for books and electronic appliances and some other paintings or pictures you can have.
In the master bedroom, the focus was to create an intimate space to change clothes and have a proper mirror. This closet splits the room in two different areas and the remaining space has a proper scale to be comfortable, practical, minimalist and cosy as a bedroom.
In the office, the idea was to create a versatile space, that allows a working area with a long desk for one or two persons along the wall, and at the same time with a lounge sofa with small coffee tables on the other wall. Here will be possible to make small meetings and/or lounge after hours of work and transform the ambience into a guest bedroom opening the MUJI sofa for a double side bed.
Again, light colors were chosen to dialogue with darker wood floor to ensure better quality in natural lighting of the space and comfort on working.
The bathrooms were thought with dark coats as an intimate and cosy ambience. Here the lights should do their scenarium taking advantage of the coating textures - can be dark concrete or even a silestone in the walls and floor. It's very pleasant to walk with naked feet on concrete or silestone texture.
The dark atmosphere works just fine for a bathroom with a proper light.
The gym is a place with a restricted layout due to the equipment to be purchased.
The plan creates a sense of space and how it can be adapted to two training equipments oriented towards a flat tv on the wall. It is possible to place a small sauna in the corner of the room as it is shown in the plan.
The important thing here is to maintain a well-ventilated area with plenty of natural light to offer the maximum comfort in this environment.
