About Granville Apartment
Crafting a Harmonious Blend of Classic and Minimalist Design
In designing an apartment for a young couple, we set out to create an interior that artfully combines a contemporary take on classical elements with a minimalist aesthetic. The goal was to achieve a spacious and well-lit space, devoid of unnecessary clutter.
Optimizing Space for Modern Living
Challenging the standard layout presented by the developer, we optimized the space to meet our objectives. We made full use of every square foot of the apartment (every square meter in metric), integrating all necessary functions. A unique feature was our transformation of the combined kitchen-living area, where we carved out an additional room to serve as a home office. In the master bedroom, we ensured privacy by incorporating an en suite bathroom and dressing room.
Marrying Classic Elements and Modern Simplicity
The design strategy hinges on the fusion of classic decorative elements with contemporary, minimalist interior pieces. Rather than over-relying on decoration, we opted for modern and straightforward furniture. At the clients’ request, built-in wardrobes were included solely in the kitchen. Lighting is provided by sleek, minimalist spotlights and modern light fixtures that draw the eye in every room. A streamlined color palette of white, black, and natural wood dominates throughout the apartment, creating a harmonious and inviting atmosphere.
