The bookshelves are artwork installation, the glass partitions of staircase and rooms act as visual expanders of the space, art tables and architectural recesses provide additional storage.
The color base of the apartment is resolved in contrast black and white with tonality emphasis achieved by marble and tile surfaces. Urban Africa enters this simple contemporary elegance by some distinctive and colorful geometric forms and graphic elements that carry rhythm and art into the atmosphere. The light, illuminating this elegant urban sanctuary, comes mainly thought the spacious windows carrying also fresh air and great view of the city but some of the lamps in the apartment deserve special attention too.
