The area is 69 sqm (743 sq ft) and initially solely had 5 home windows.  Whereas the younger household desired a recent design in addition they wished to retain components of the unique Edwardian 2-room structure (one massive room on the entrance and one on the rear).  A giant a part of the renovation included including extra home windows for extra pure mild.

Being a smaller condo, storage was a problem.  Daniele Petteno got down to incorporate hidden storage all through the condo.  For instance, take a look at the master suite under.  The rostrum not solely serves as a desk however accommodates loads of storage.

My favourite storage characteristic is the huge floor-to-ceiling bookshelf in the lounge.  I like how the books present a splash of coloration within the area in opposition to the white shelf and wall.

Compact design options:

One intelligent compact design characteristic is the ‘yacht’ lavatory which was impressed by bogs constructed on boats that are achieved with area effectivity in thoughts, but continues to be a completely functioning lavatory.  On this case, Daniele did a masterful job creating each an environment friendly lavatory and lovely lavatory area.

Right here you’ll be able to see the opening between the dwelling space of the condo and main bedroom.  This may be closed off for privateness with a Venetian blind.

White bookshelves span the lounge wall to the ceiling creating an area for storage and a manner so as to add a splash of coloration within the area.  I like this bookshelf from each a sensible and aesthetic perspective.

The main bedroom was very cleverly designed.  The mattress sits elevated on a podium beneath which is storage which is much-needed in small condo areas for younger rising households.
