Type St Apartment, a 35m2 one bedroom 70’s unitt subtly reimagined by architect Jack Chen of Melbourne-based Tsai Design. Cleverly designed to change between office and home.
Inner city living often throws up the battle of small garden space versus off street parking. The option of having both, garden over garage, is in itself problematic. How to get lush green outdoor space without access to a natural soil profile – in planter boxes, on slab and vault structures? This Paddington plot is a clever and oh so chic solution from Sydney-based Paddington Fieldwork Associates.

42 sqm of affordable, small space living solutions from Colombia. Think simple lines with an industrial/brutalist vibe softened by golden wood tones and textiles. Axxis Vipas by Bogotá-based Colette Studio. (Our first Colombian designers I think.)
The drama continues thanks to the creative folks of PROjECT and this fantastic small apartment with a distinctive global feel. This is our girl Aimee’s Ukrainian village respite. A 650-square-foot studio filled with treasures from amazing places with all the divine sensations — Tanzania, Nicaragua, Peru, Mexico, Bali, India — it’s the ultimate nod to her nomadic flow, and the living room where PROjECT was born. Our resident hunter + gather pairs a tribal vibe with her signature rip-tear-shred aesthetic; literally, ripped drapes + shredded pillows, and a few space-saving hacks. The bedroom was transformed into a walk-in closet and the sofa doubles as a headboard from the backside. It’s an all-white space enveloped in a cloud of copal incense, where there’s a memory, story or person behind each treasure.
Sometimes all you need are neutrals. Beige/caramel tones mixed with black and modern artwork make this apartment in New York timeless and a bit edgy. Perfection. By Arthur Casas.
