Small can still be stylish / by Stacey Pope

We recently had the opportunity to design a wonderful two bed apartment. On plan, the space is rather compact but in reality the apartment feels just as luxurious and stylish as any other interior we've created.  

We were fortunate with this apartment as we were able to design the architectural space from the outset. Originally a solid rock face within the grounds of an existing property the apartment was skillfully excavated. A concrete structure was formed to create the apartment but to also support the property and terraces above. Working to stringent local planning regulations and various structural requirements, we gave careful consideration to the shape and layout of the apartment.

Everything has been designed with the ultimate goal to create the feeling of space, light, luxury and comfort.

The apartment has a generous ceiling height giving a spacious, open feel. The facade is formed of full-height glass doors, flooding the apartment with natural light and when opened remove all sense of boundary between the interior and exterior spaces. This is emphasized by the natural stone floor which runs seamlessly throughout the apartment extending onto the exterior terrace. Custom designed pocket doors provide flexibility allowing the spaces to be opened or closed off as desired.

The kitchen was designed with functionality and beauty in mind, creating a furniture back drop housing both storage and display. Open-plan wardrobes provide maximum space and light in each bedroom whilst hand-made, custom rugs introduce texture, warmth and luxury. 

So, just remember... Small can still be stylish
