This second floor apartment began as a dated 1970s condo stuck in time before STADT Architecture were hired to renovate it for a young professional. Located on the Upper West Side in New York City, the apartment’s new plan divided it into three levels – a vertical loft – with walnut wood floors and paneling connecting them. A wall of white, built-in storage cabinets rests along one side of the living room, a contrast to the warm walnut wood. Two main requests came from the owner: to enlarge both the sleeping loft and the bathroom. To make that happen, the wall overlooking the living area was taken down and the bed was moved to create a bed and headboard structure with storage. That eliminated the need for a guard rail, thereby making more space. The now opened up space on the other side of the loft becomes a wall of

Tower Apt. No1 in Tel Aviv by RUST architects

                                Located in a new building in the center of Tel Aviv, Israel, the Tower <a href="http://rustarch.com/tower-apt1"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Apt. No1</a> spans 100 square meters (approx. 1076 square feet) and began as an empty, unfinished space with much of the perimeter being floor-to-ceiling windows. After the young couple purchased the apartment, they hired <a href="http://rustarch.com/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">RUST architects</a> to bring the space to life with a highly functional floor plan and a loft-like feel.
The interior’s aesthetic merges soft, cozy materials with raw, industrial ones, including iron, glass, and rough wood. Overall, the color scheme leans towards black and white with blue filling in as an accent color. The concrete ceiling remained untouched leaving the lighting to be left exposed for that industrial feel. An office was built within a black iron and glass room that allows daylight in while offering privacy. Throughout, family objects were incorporated with the couple’s things to bring a bit of history to

A 1950s Micro Apartment Is Renovated for Modern Times

With just 28 square meters, the micro apartment needed a major renovation to make it work for today&#8217;s standards and that&#8217;s where <a href="https://www.j-in.com.au/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">J-IN&#8217;s</a> Douglas Wan comes in. All internal walls were removed and with a new steel beam installed, the interior no longer required load-bearing walls to keep the ceiling up. That opened the design plan up to just about anything.
The new living space takes up a large portion of the square footage, blocked from front door by a corridor of wooden storage. The same light plywood continues into the living area with a floating multipurpose unit that goes from a large seating area for eight people to a bed that sleeps two in a matter of minutes. Built-in storage surrounds it and keeps things concealed when not in use. Back

Penthouse F6.1 in Prague by Jana Hamrova of Objectum

                                Architect Jana Schnappel Hamrová, of <a href="http://www.objectum.cz/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Objectum</a>, designed this family apartment in Prague to be a light-filled space with a neutral interior. <a href="http://www.objectum.cz/project-f61"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Penthouse F6.1</a> sits on top of the building with a full glass facade making it feel like it&#8217;s floating above the city making for exceptional views.
It was designed with a cross-shaped layout to create separate zones with the central core housing access to the building’s elevator and staircase. The four zones – dining, living, kids, and sleeping – each contain a bathroom that reflects the design of that particular area. With hot summer months, a special cooling system was installed to filter cooler air in around the ceiling perimeter. Fun fact: The oversized dining table and piano required a crane to get them in the apartment! Photos by Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNice.

Paulista</a> is a minimal home located in São Paulo, Brazil, designed by <a href="http://felipehess.com.br/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Felipe Hess</a>. The architecture office adopts a collaborative creative process where the relationship between materiality and spatiality is explored through sketches, prototypes, mock-ups, 3D images, and widely detailed designs that guarantee a sophisticated execution.
As a result, this apartment perfectly culminates the client’s collection of art and furniture, with the focus of making the architecture disappear by creating a clean backdrop to house the vast and special collection that is in constant transformation. In order to achieve greater integration of the spaces, the four bedrooms and compartmentalized rooms have been totally reconfigured and opened up. In order to tie the space together, a monolithic floor runs throughout the apartment, reinforcing the continuity of the spaces. Photography by Ruy Teixeira.

Spanning 60m2, the space boasted high ceilings and historic details they chose to restore while giving it a contemporary spin and new layout.
The new layout has a better flow between the rooms and feels more open. One of the family’s requests was lots of storage which is incorporated throughout. The kitchen is separated from the living room by a new wood and glass wall that keeps the sight lines open while offering definition. Detailed moldings were added to work with the original ones for a more cohesive look. The floors are covered in two materials – wood in a herringbone pattern and classic black and white tiles in the kitchen, hallway, and bathroom.

A young family wanted the designers to help combine two apartments into one, and create a space that would feel more like a home than a New York City apartment.
Through the combination of apartments, the designers were able to think through how to maximize natural light while creating an airy and comfortable space. The programs were re-arranged, and the living room was opened up toward the rear patio while the designers drastically enlarged the kitchen area on the ground floor. Throughout the renovation, the designers were conscientious in bringing in local designers to fill the space. As a result, light fixtures, wallpaper, and tiles were all made by local designers. As described by General Assembly, the final result was a clean, open space dotted with moments of design that are particular to this family

They positioned the main living area by the long expanse of windows to increase natural light and to enjoy the skyline views. Right underneath the windows is an embedded garden which adds greenery to the views even on the 28th floor. Instead of walling the apartment off, they designed partitions that help divide the spaces up without closing them off. Cherry wood panels form the living room and pair nicely with the pink sofa and yellow chairs. The floors throughout are made of oak and are laid in a herringbone pattern. In the kitchen,

The two-story residence had a layout that wasn&#8217;t working so the studio flipped it, bringing the private spaces downstairs and the living area upstairs in order to utilize the roof deck.
Upstairs houses the open kitchen and living room which extends out to the outdoor terrace, expanding the square footage. Lots of windows surround the public space to create a light-filled interior that appears larger than it is. Part of the kitchen cabinetry hides a door leading to a storage area and guest bathroom. The stairwell features concrete stairs and a skylight that filters light down to the entryway. By twisting the staircase and lighting it from above, it draws guests upstairs to the public area.

Best Interior Design Posts of 2017

                                Every week we go inside some of the most incredible modern houses, apartments, and offices to get a taste of how other people live, or rather, to get a peek at their taste. Most spaces leave us with severe design envy, ready to forward our mail directly there, or at least dream of it. But most of all, they leave us inspired and wanting to incorporate some elements into our own homes.

The goal was to maintain historical elements while bringing a modern aesthetic throughout.
They incorporated colorful Art Deco furnishings with contemporary paintings, while preserving the textured walls for added history.  The main living space is now fairly open with the addition of a custom, black steel bookshelf that utilized an original steel beam above. The oak herringbone parquet floors were restored grounding the space. A mix of chairs surround the vintage dining table, which resides next to the sleek, modern kitchen. On the opposite side of the apartment away from the busy street, there are three bedrooms, bathrooms, and closets. Photos by Piotr Mastalerz.

The concept centered around their friendship, which led the firm to focus on the triangle as a representation of their three roles in the home. As you would expect, the Triangle House features the geometric element throughout resulting in a bold and fun interior.
While the bones of the space are fairly white and grey, the homeowner’s books and toy collection, as well as select furnishings, pop with color. A wall in the kitchen is covered with silver and white wallpaper that extends into the master bedroom. Slender, triangular panels on the cabinets offer a peek inside while working as door handles. A long, grey table extends out from the bright green kitchen island and doubles as a work surface to do crafts. Even the ceiling has triangular shapes, as

The Azul Apartment in Brazil by Leandro Garcia

                                                <a href="http://design-milk.com/the-azul-apartment-in-brazil-by-leandro-garcia/apartment-azul-leandro-garcia-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="http://design-milk.com/images/2017/11/Apartment-Azul-Leandro-Garcia-1-810x540.jpg" alt="The Azul Apartment in Brazil by Leandro Garcia" /></a>
                                Located in Curitiba, Brazil, the Azul Apartment is a modern space designed by <a href="http://www.leandrogarcia.com.br/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Leandro Garcia</a> for a young, single executive who loves to entertain. Spanning 80 square meters, the apartment was reconfigured for flexibility of spaces and open sight lines.
The main living space combines a long narrow kitchen and living room. The kitchen has a lower ceiling height and all white finishes setting it apart from the seating area. The walls, floor, and ceilings in the living and dining room area have the same cement finish which contrasts the warm woods and shades of blue seen throughout. A wood clad passageway connects the living room with the office/TV room, with doors that access the bedroom and a bathroom. The office space used to be divided into two small rooms but they removed the wall to create a larger, more useful space. Photos by Ricardo Perini.
