Cozy apartments cleverly disguise their compactness through design if owners are lucky enough to work with creative minds like Chinese company House Design. This smart, functional and modern family apartment in Taiwan was customized to the needs of the owners – a vibrant interior with plenty of hints towards nature. Infused with vibrancy through color, this collection of living spaces were arranged around a TV that swivels around to face the social area, the cooking zone or the office space.
Geometry helps separate areas in the home, as well as different functions. Mixing different building materials, the design studio managed to create a sleek interior design that supports an open lifestyle. Wood is used to add warmth and texture: a tree-inspired table in the open kitchen, wooden details framing the sofa or undulating wood shelves compose an inviting, contemporary atmosphere.
Vibrant colors punctuate the spaces while natural light is filtered through blinds and curtains. Glossy floors give the design an interesting twist, visually expanding the space. In this modern family apartment, bedrooms are inviting but keep that sleek sophistication and everything has its place in this fantastic family home.
