Remember the chic walk-up serviced apartment in the Hong Kong classic Tong Lau?
The folks at the Urban Design & Build have shared with me another 2 of their projects recently. Looking at the images, it is surprising to know that they are just merely below 200 sqft and 400 sqft each. We don’t usually associate “breezy interior” with small living spaces, but these 2 apartments demonstrate that with careful planning (and of course great taste and discipline to keep things minimal), you can still have that relaxing airy feel albeit the small square footage.
The first project is Studio M.
This 200 sqft studio apartment is designed for a single lady. The main living space has a Scandinavian color palette of white and grey. An interesting area rug ground the living room. I especially like design of the sliding door that partitions the sleeping area to give privacy, and still allowing flexibilities to open up the living space.
Located in the heart of CWB, it comes with a 180 sqft rooftop terrace. The lavender upholstery and the accessories used give a feminine touch to this space. This beautiful terrace will certainly make a great entertainment space for friends and family to gather.
