Here in Singapore, living in a studio apartment comes with a slew of challenges. For example, how do you maintain the essential areas for everyday living without cramping the space? The key, it seems, lies in meticulous space planning. Design firm D’ Initial Concept made this bachelor pad as stylish and contemporary as it is functional and space-efficient.
The studio apartment comes in at approximately 550 square feet, but after renovations (including the hacking of a wall at the bedroom) it feels larger than that. With its new open concept layout, the designers used different flooring materials to delineate the areas. In the sleeping and work areas, wood planks run underfoot, while the living area feature shiny black tiles.
When it comes to storage, D’ Initial Concept wanted to intuitively incorporate it into the design without taking too much precious space. They created a platform bed that not only allows the homeowner to keep bulky items out of sight, but also to eliminate the need for a bedframe.
Other design tricks in this apartment include the use of mirrors (used on the walls and portions of the ceiling), glass (used as partitions between rooms) and textures (marble, brick and ‘metal sheet’ laminates).
