                                At just 35-square-meters (approx. 377-square-feet), this small apartment located in the heart of Lviv, Ukraine was given a major renovation by <a href="http://replus.com.ua/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">replus design bureau</a> to make use of every inch. Named &#8216;<a href="http://replus.com.ua/55_zar"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Little Flat Transformation in Lviv</a>&#8216;, the space is owned by a couple who happen to be architects that wanted to incorporate their own design aesthetic. While concentrating on maximizing the space they had, they also wanted to preserve the historical details, like the Austrian parquet floors and brick walls.
The main room needed to function for different purposes so they raised the bed high off the floor to work as a loft space. By lifting the bed off the floor they were able to bring in a sectional sofa and plenty of storage blow. The kitchen acts as the hub of the home where they installed a large island that can be extended if needed. Using laminated

The layout had to be restructured to fit the lifestyles of two young brothers to include a living room, TV room, dining room, kitchen, laundry, balcony, and office in one single space. The result is the <a href="http://www.fcstudio.com.br/memorial/107"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Vila Olimpia Apartment</a> complete with modular pieces that can be rearranged to accommodate their needs and adapt with them over time.

The apartment spans 80-square-meters (approx. 861-square-feet) and is finished with just enough furniture to make it a comfortable space without it being overcrowded.
The overall palette was kept fairly neutral with herringbone wood floors, wooden details, and grey walls with the exception of one deep red wall in the bedroom which features gypsum hexagonal moldings. A dividing wall between the bedroom and living room is made of thin wood strips that let light pass through while offering a degree of privacy. Photos courtesy of OM Architecture.

HN25 Is a Renovated Canal House in the Center of Amsterdam by Standard Studio

                                Located in an old canal house built at the beginning of the 17th century in Amsterdam, <a href="http://standardstudio.nl/portfolio/nh25-loft/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">NH25</a> is a modern loft designed by <a href="http://www.standardstudio.nl/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Standard Studio</a>. The entryway is through a double garage door which is the only part of the house seen from the street. That level houses space for a car, bikes, and a home theater room.
The loft itself is built where the courtyard used to be with no windows to let natural light into the space. To rectify that, the architects designed a new central courtyard with floor-to-ceiling windows adding much needed daylight inside. To bring in additional light, they installed six large skylights that keep the interior bright and feeling spacious. The open floor plan remains private since no windows connect the space with nearby neighbors. The rooms are placed around the courtyard giving easy access to the outdoor space.

The owner had lived in the Xindian River neighborhood as a child and now wanted to raise his own child in the same district. The results are a combination of the couple&#8217;s styles – modern elements for the husband and natural details for the wife – that harmoniously come together to form a warm and elegant space.
In order to disguise the steel girders and pipes on the ceilings, they deconstructed it to create arched panels leaving room in between for them. They’re able to bring together the styles by using different materials for the floors, walls, and ceilings. For instance, they’ve paired polished concrete floors with a more natural wall color with a textured finish and brick on

A Neutral Color Palette and Glass Elements Transform a Compact 35m2 Apartment

A Cozy Flat in Odessa Designed for a Student by Fateeva Design

                                Working with just 17.3-square-meters (approx. 186-square-feet), <a href="https://www.behance.net/fateeva_design"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Fateeva Design</a> created the perfect studio apartment for a student in Odessa, Ukraine. The owners inherited the flat and weren&#8217;t quite sure what to do with it when Elena Fateeva suggested they transform it into a rental unit. The apartment had limited floor space but they were able to incorporate a sleeping area, workspace, kitchen, and a bathroom without it feeling cramped.
The functional areas line the perimeter of the unit leaving the center open for moving around. A neutral white paired with wood and black details keeps the overall design from feeling too busy. The raised bed houses storage underneath to make sure every square inch was utilized. The small entryway even had room for a wardrobe to store clothing. Photos by Andrey Avdeenko.

Studio Anita: A Small, but Smartly Designed Apartment by AMBIDESTRO Arquitetura

                                Spanning a mere 42-square-meters, Studio Anita is a modest apartment in Porto Alegre, Brazil, that was designed by <a href="https://www.ambidestro.arq.br/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">AMBIDESTRO Arquitetura</a>. With more people going smaller, it can present a problem for architects, challenging them to think outside the box. While this studio apartment may be compact, it&#8217;s mighty when it comes to functionality and layout.
To make the most of the space, the furniture was centrally located in the open living area and consists of a bed, sofa, and desk/dining table. That left open pathways along the perimeter of the room for easy movement between functions. The thick, plush headboard incorporates storage and becomes a place to set a lamp that can rotate to be useful in each zone. At one end of the space, the kitchen takes up the entire wall while hiding a lot of function and storage behind its wooden cabinet doors. Photos by Marcelo Donadussi.

The architects wanted to redefine the typical norms when designing a small-space apartment in Hong Kong, and instead focus on creating an environment centered around lifestyle and living in the moment.
The designers made a conscious decision to shift away from a design strategy centered around compartmentalization, and instead focus on achieving continuity of material and space. While the clients wanted an open plan, there were concerns in maintaining privacy and comfort. The architects decided to create pockets and slightly adjacent spaces which would, “condense absolute privacy to a minimal footprint, freeing up the rest of the space to interpretation.” The result is a series of spaces that open up to each other like an unfolding canvas.

The original 1980s design left the rooms dark and uninviting resulting in the need for a new solution. To connect the spaces, they designed a floor plan with walls set to 45 degrees so the interior flowed, while delivering sufficient ventilation and natural light.
The new layout also made way for three independent bedrooms and a shared bathroom whose doors are disguised in blue. The blue switches to white in the living room where a wall of minimalist cabinets surround the television. The interior combines black details with white and blue surfaces for a bold graphic design that keeps you visually invested. The geometric tile in the kitchen and dining room brings all the colors together in an unexpected way. The master bedroom benefits from a glass panel that
