It was really a challenge for us to fulfill all the wishes of the owner of the apartment of only 35m2. A double bed for sleeping, a sofa bed for the grandchildren to sleep on, a large kitchen with all modern appliances, a dining table for up to 4 people, a work corner for a PC, plenty of storage space, a seating "window" at the entrance and a library as big as possible. Ugh! So we really had to use every inch efficiently. The investor's main requirements were a spacious kitchen and a bright, warm interior.

The interior is all light complemented with warm oak wood. In order not to make the apartment dull we decided to make the whole central part of the apartment, which hides the bathroom, really distinctive. When you enter the apartment, the first thing that catches your eye is the custom-made oak partition that separates the sleeping area from the entrance area. Visually, we also separated the bed from the rest of the living room by using oak panelling.

In order to achieve the most spacious impression of the kitchen area, one side of the kitchen cabinet is offset from the living core, giving the kitchen a slight "V" shape. It opens up into the living space. We could then fit the washing machine into the kitchen. Thanks to the ingenious use of the space around the bathroom, a really big bookcase became the main feature of the room. To support its dominance in the space we gave it a dark brown colour, which really catches the eye in the rest of the light interior.
