Entry Description

It is a 450 square feet open-plan studio. It is commissioned by a client for lease purpose and this modern cozy design targets on young couples.

Instead of locating the bed at the corner or with a large backdrop that most people usually do, the designer has chosen to place it at the middle of the room.

Together with the bar table as well as sofa, all 3 functioning area united into one giant structure for this studio.

Leaving the other edges for TV wall, study desk and wardrobe. This saves a lot of space for this tiny flat.

The position of the bed also enhanced the best view of the studio. Also, the mirror at the entrance corridor enlarged the space visually.

The cinema chair is used at the sofa area because it allows extra seating when serving friends but to maintain a comfortable walking space when it's not being occupied.
