When it comes to small apartments, functionality and comfort are the two main “issues” that need to be taken into account. The greatest challenge as a designer is to create (or at least give the feeling that there is) more space then it actually…is. The Australian Minosa Design Studio designed this small apartment of a family of five in Bondi Beach, Sydney, trying to solve the problem of space. The studio is specialized in stand-alone design concepts for contemporary bathrooms and kitchens, so the client’s request to adjust the small space and create a larger one, by adding an extra floor and creating a fun, functional and “stiffed” with appliances kitchen was pretty interesting and challenging.
The heart of the kitchen consists of a ten-seater table, luscious (and with an expendable part). It incorporated plenty of shelves that can be easily hidden. This was a very interesting approach towards the designers’ solution which I absolutly love. They chose to simply “hide” parts of the kitchen, under white and luscious sliding doors, in order to create more space.
