Most remodels done to small apartments are focused on opening up the spaces and making them seem larger, brighter and more welcoming overall. We’ve seen a few really interesting design strategies so far and today we’re adding one more to our list. The subject today is a studio apartment located in Hong Kong, a city known for its small homes and also for their incredibly creative and interesting interior designs. The apartment we want to show you measures 55 square meters across so it’s not super tiny but is small enough to present some challenges.
The interior was remodeled by Sim-Plex Design Studio in 2017. The main goal of the remodel was to connect the two zones, the living area and the workspace and to create a feeling of freedom, openness, brightness and fluidity throughout the apartment. This was achieved by removing the wall separating the home office and making the space a part of the open-plan living and dining area. By doing that, the designers also managed to bring natural light into the workspace which was lacking before. As far as the rest of the project is concerned, the most notable and eye-catching detail would have to be the custom cabinetry which is defined by smooth lines, curved corners and edges and a seamless and harmonious vibe overall.
