“Form and function were inseparable from the outset of the design process to ensure that everything the client desired would fit within the space”, Yasmine assured. With space at a premium, they had to maximise storage capacity and ensure every element worked hard, with multiple uses. “Everything here has been carefully designed to do more than one job. Due to the formidable size constraints, every square centimetre of the apartment has been optimised,” she said. Cleverly, the living room doubles as a guest bedroom with a fold-down bed and a custom louvred timber screen that can be pulled across to shut off the dining area. When the fold-down bed is not in use, the grey stained panel is used to watch movies on, with a concealed projector screen in the mix. At the entry, a laundry is disguised between sliding doors with a custom off form terrazzo ledge to place your keys.
