Small and Mighty

A classic case of design challenges in our city; the emergence of urbanisation and megacities with compact living models. But that wouldn’t stop our clients Vincent and Amanda from living their lives to the fullest. We took on the challenge to create a living space perfect for two to the occasional extra company for this couple with a small 773 square feet unit.

While an interior stays true to its homeowner’s characteristics, it begs for room to store the daily essentials. We promised that Vincent and Amanda wouldn’t have to compromise practicality by designing areas which could be configured to suit their interest.

The team planned for a custom-built storage space to store fundamental objects with a mirror as its facade, along with additional storage built into their dining bench. A small (and unnoticed), but mighty touch, we believe. The dining area is cleverly attached to the living room TV cabinet to make space for Amanda’s personal kitchen island. Not a storage room in sight? Not a problem. This intimate unit unravels all the surprises one at a time.
