A compact condominium decorated in space-saving style, accented with an eclectic union of rural vibes and industrial influences.
GI Design makes use of a neutral palette and customised fittings with slim profiles to compose a serene and expansive ambiance in this 870 square-foot condominium. A wall by the foyer presents a gradated wash of blue-grey to white – the gradient transitioning to a white ceiling at the top and darkening along the tile skirting at the base, while the adjacent wall is rendered in white-washed brick along its entire length to the furthest extent of the seating lounge.
The open layout of the combined dining and seating areas is subdivided by a partition wall, composed in part from frosted glass panels set in minimalist metal frames. The imagery of these minimalist frames is repeated on the wall of the dining area, with shelving formed out of ebonised wood fixed to the white-washed brick wall.
Minimalist Division: The individual areas of the open layout — the foyer, dining area, and seating lounge, are separated by carbon-coated metal frames signaling the transition between spaces.
A simplistic banquette dining arrangement is rendered in white and pale wood with the selection of a distinctly Scandinavian dining table and the accompanying form-pressed side chairs of ubiquitous design. Hanging over the Scandinavian dining arrangement is a four-bulb reproduction of the Harrow billiard chandelier, its shadows casting a geometric impression against the white background of the dining space.
The path into the kitchens is sectioned off in a manner similar to the partition between the dining area and seating lounge – with sliding doors composed from the same quality of frosted glass panels and robust carbon-coated metal frames. The cooking space is a combination of dry and wet kitchen, subdivided by a short wall projection with see-through box niches cut into it. The designed transparency serves to expand the narrow confines of the single-wall configuration – along with an uninterrupted stretch of mirrored panelling occupying the backsplash of the outer kitchen space.
Splashes of blue-grey and dusky teal respectively occupy the walls of the study and the bedrooms to personalise these private spaces, with accents of wood and reflective panels repeated alongside these decorative planes in a continuation of the prevailing theme seen in the open layout of this home. While the bedrooms are replete with elements evocative of the countryside, the study takes on a more modern personality with wood grains relegated to a backsplash surrounded by wall-mounted cubicles and shelves projecting from the walls.
