Natural materials, clear lines and clever utilization of the space are characterizing this small modest apartment situated in Hanoi. It is Vietnam’s apartment tradition to completely separate the privet areas from the public ones and the solution here is quite interesting – in the mid-space of the apartment a solid block is incorporated containing the WC and bathroom premises. This solution intriguingly not only separates but also joins different spaces of the apartment. Beautiful art piece turns the odd mid-space wall into exhibiting installation.
The bedroom is distinguished from the other spaces by floor elevation and raw silk curtains sliding on bamboo rails. Stylish black and white cabinets cover two of the walls increasing the storage room without overloading the space. The light color scheme combined with an abundance of natural materials – linen, papyrus, bamboo, untilled wood and raw silk – give to the space magnificent light elegance and simplicity.
Interesting details of the interior that may pass unnoticed at the first glimpse are: the oblique glass roof of the WC that provides natural light into the premise, the second bed that if not needed can by tidy into the floor-to-ceiling wardrobe and of course the magnificent dark chestnut floor that provides dramatic counterpoint with the white walls and stylishly reflects the natural light.
