A compact home, rendered spacious with neutral colours and minimalist lines.
ID Industries makes a compact home spacious by saturating an open layout in the neutral palette and providing minimal definition in uncomplicated lines accented with soft lighting and pale wood. The open configuration of this condominium’s conjoined dining space and seating lounge is magnified by white walls left plain—with the exception of some deliberate lines constituting one of the few decorative features of the space.
The view from the entryway presents a long stretch of cream floor tiles enclosed between simplistically lined white walls on one side and a generous length of mirrored panels rising from floor to ceiling along the opposite wall. With the heavy drapery at the far end of the layout drawn open, the space is bathed in sunlight, the filtered quality of light bringing the white walls closer into the realm of grey at the height of the day.
This striking scene almost distracts the naïve eye from noticing the utilitarian kitchen tucked into an alcove beside the entrance, the white countertops and pale wood cabinet doors working to push back the darkness brought on by the shade of the slightly lowered ceiling and the dark tint of the larger appliances.
A dining surface protrudes into the space next to the kitchen, its diminutive form appearing to unfold out of a blank rectangle nested within a stretch of mirrors. The accompanying side chairs feature dark wooden frames and pale upholstery to match the two tones of the dining surface, further decreasing the imposition of the arrangement into the space.
Wooden Concealment: A partition of wood bearing a rectangular motif similar to the adjacent wall hides the bedroom when slid closed.
