Small spaces

Posted on Fri, 4 Apr 2008 by midcenturyjo

Real estate stalking again. What else is a girl to do on a slow Friday afternoon? I found this tiny terrace in the oldest part of my home town and I’m blown away by the small space tricks the architect (don’t know which firm unfortunately) has used here. As you can see from the outside this terrace is not much more than 4 metres across if that. Love the wall cutouts and use of glass as well as the vertical full height banisters and folding wall of windows. The decor looks a little “hired” and I’m itching to add some art and personal touches as well as shots of colour but it’s the great sense of space I’m highlighting here. Forget that the bedroom looks like the developer has bunked down for the duration and imagine what that room must be like when the bifolds are pushed back and the late summer breeze blows in. Love the view from the rear balcony over it’s teeny weeny and historic neighbours. All this less than one kilometre from the CBD.


Speaking of small spaces, I just saw this video!

The way the architect plays with light is awesome. Watch it through to the end 😉

Wow that’s cool shanti! Thanks for the link.

The exterior of this house is SO CUTE!!!! I love the woodwork and it’s contrast against the black. And I’ve always wanted to have steel rods in place of the typical banister.

What a cute little house! Love the view.


A great canvas indeed!

They’ve done a great job. Love the use of glass and reflective surfaces. The variation in ceiling heights is a nice detail too.
