A SMALL APARTMENT WITH EVERYTHING YOU NEED
This small two-storey apartment is located in the heart of the historical centre of Bordeaux, in France.
The major challenge faced by the designers of this project was to transform a small space into a comfortable place, with all the features of a large apartment. Despite being effectively a small space, its main potentiality is the great brightness, thanks to the 10 existing windows, which helps to visually enlarge the apartment. Taking advantage of this quality, the Atelier Miel, responsible for the project, chose to main material a clear and sober wood, reinforcing the cozy atmosphere. The walls and volumes are dressed in white, which also contributed to creating that spatial illusion. Considering the limited areas, the designers chose to arrange the house in several modules - to eat, to sleep, to work - arranged in different levels. Everything has been thought and designed in detail, in order to every things has its place. The result is a cozy and modern apartment, great for relaxing.
