Urban Spaces is a project designed for a mother and her two daughters – 11 and 7 years old. The 80 sqm apartment is located in Urban Spaces complex, which was shortlisted European Union Prize for Architecture – Mies Van der Rohe in 2015. Its surface is divided into three bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, living room and hallway.
The client desired he apartment to inspire feminine values, taking into account the preferences of their favorite colors. One of the challenges was to create a spacious place for shoe storage.
Concept and execution
Interior design for Urban Spaces apartment has a fresh air through the white chromatic, where sunlight is free to enter, opening the perspective. The living room arrangement is made around the center piece, a modern chandelier located above the dining table. This white-based apartment creates a color story with cleverly spaced home accessories, such as thrown cushions, wall paintings, floral arrangements and even fruits. The color choices really inject a lot of warmth into the otherwise cool hues, and bring an overall more vibrant finish.
Storage spaces, carefully designed to be hidden, are equipped with sliding doors, each corner being used to the full and accessorized with silent door opening systems or hidden catches. A special attention was given to the dressing, a custom piece of furniture transformed into a distinctive room. It is equipped with smart accessories for storage and a revolving system designed to store several pairs of shoes in a very small space.
The arrangements for the children’s rooms maintain the style formed of straight and simple lines, where the white is splashed with the favorite colors of the two girls. The furniture designed has touches of color, like green or blue, which creates a cheerful and friendly atmosphere where young girls can retreat and work on their projects.
