This is a no ordinary small apartment. Boasting quite a few square feet in its area, the modern home enjoys an open layout designed in the most contemporary style. Daniele Petteno Architecture Workshop made sure this small London apartment didn’t have the same problem (or rather a disadvantage) that all the others do – lack of light.
In the living room, the two big windows offer plenty of daylight exposure, but since the room is quite long, the kitchen on the opposite side would suffer had it not have a window into the bedroom.
The bedroom has a single opening of the same size as the living room windows, and that’s what allows the black kitchen bask in the glorious daylight. It helps that the pristine white bedroom walls reflect lots of it, rendering both spaces so much brighter.
Interior windows often make for creative solutions that help space take advantages from all possible sides. The layout of the kitchen and living area itself is also very interesting. The long wall houses minimal kitchen storage units, while the shorter one accommodates working and cooking tops. The farthest end of the kitchen also serves as a TV wall for the living area whose cubby storage wall forms a beautiful modern library.
Just like that, with a seemingly simple detail, a long spacious room continues and flows seamlessly into a more private area. Thanks to the curtains and blinds, the residents can rest easy during the night, and enjoy tons of light come morning.
