40 square meters in Milan

Posted on Thu, 3 Mar 2016 by midcenturyjo

A small apartment in Milan, Italy uses a clever visual trick to increase the sense of space and define zones within its otherwise open plan. Vertical pieces of larch and two black painted plywood panels delineate the rooms allowing the eye to travel easily throughout the space. Clever interior design by the Milanese studio TOMOarchitects.

Living small and living large

Posted on Wed, 2 Mar 2016 by midcenturyjo

Living small. Tiny house. Buzz words for a fleeting trend vs social movement and way of the future. Wherever you stand on tiny houses there is something we can all agree on. How incredibly stylish and devilishly clever is this compact recreation house near Utrecht in Holland by Roel van Norel and Zecc Architecten? It comes in at 40 m² or about 430 ft². Yes you can shake your head and say it’s great for a holiday but you couldn’t live there forever. Why not? I know I’d love to give it a try.

“The brief was to breath new life into an un-renovated 42sqm one bedroom apartment from the 1930s to provide sufficient relax, play and work spaces for a young professional couple.”

At 42sqm the footprint is small but clever storage solutions and design means that the living is large. The Hacienda by Adriano Pupilli Architect.

Stalking

I’m stalking one of my favourite style mavens. Interior designer Pamela Makin of Les Interieurs has cast a spell over this tiny pied-à-terre at Rushcutters Bay, Sydney and created an inner city oasis. If I bought it I would have to insist that everything stays. Link here while it lasts.

Small on space but big on stylish ideas, this studio apartment in Brunswick, Melbourne may have sold but we can still file away some small space living ideas. Link here while it lasts.
