OR VIEW ALL
"There is always a connection, or a connective point," explains Andrea from RLDesign, describing how the sitting room links up with covered balconies, as well as the family room and kitchen. Custom-made panels that can divide the kitchen/family room from the sitting room retract into walls to permit a seamless flow between the rooms.
A study nook in the centre of the home, used by the owners, opens up to the entrance hallway but can be cordoned off with a large sliding door when necessary. The key to this functional working space, however - and for the apartment in general - is storage. All working tools are hidden but accessible in cupboards that run along a wall in the ajoining hallway.
Every centimetre of the apartment's floorplan is utilised. Balconies are used for breakfast, dining and casual entertainment; the family room is where the owners and their children gather to share the day's events.The fit-out is high-end but not precious (ceilings are simple plywood for one), with materials used being mostly practical and serviceable - resilient leather for occasional chairs, salt-and-pepper weaves for sofas. The colour scheme is basically monochromatic, with snippets of tan used for warmth.
